Welcome to the HW family, I am glad that you found us. I am also glad that you are finding the support that you are looking for.
A book that I found very helpful in the past is "Bipolar Disorder Demystified: Mastering the Tightrope of Manic Depression" by Lana R. Castle. There is a lot of info on BP and is an easy read. You don't have to buy it and you should be able to find it at the local library.

Welcome to HW I am sorry to hear about your rough time recently, I am also glad to know you made it through and you are still "here". Good for you, you have proven your strength.
My favourite bp book is "Surviving Manic Depression" by E. Fuller Torrey & Michael B. Knable. I use this book all the time.
What type of bp did the doc diagnose you with? Glad you're here, keep posting, ask us any questions that come to mind, we are here to help. It's really good that you are wanting to learn about all of this, that is what has helped me the most.
