Hi I was diagnosed Bipolar back in 2000. I've been having a rough patch lately and came here for some support. I have a medication doctor but no therapist, and may be getting an outreach worker soon.
Thing is, my dad has been hospitalized for 3 months now and I can't deal with it anymore. I feel so alone. My family is not very supportive and my mother died 10 years ago. I'm relatively young but I feel so stressed. My friends are great but I can't burden them with too much or talk much about my problems with them really. I'm just kind of scared; I don't want to end up back in the hospital myself as I have a dog and other animals and a house to take care of now that Dad is so sick.
Sorry if this isn't the place to post about stuff like this but my symptoms have been getting worse, and to add to it I have BAD PMS... I'm trying my DBT skills I learned but I still feel like I'm losing it a bit.

Hi Tigereyez:

Welcome to the forum. I'm sorry to hear about how hard a time you've been having. This forum is exactly the kind of place where you can vent like crazy and not feel guilty. We're all in the same boats We're good at advice, pats on the back, whatever you need. Glad you're here.

Is your dad sick with a mental disorder or a physical ailment? What's an outreach worker? Is that like a therapist? Is that someone you can talk to?

And you can feel perfectly fine talking about symptoms here -- we all do.

Hang in there,

Bipolar II
It is a melancholy of mine own, compounded of many simples, extracted from many objects, and indeed the sundry contemplation of my travels, in which my often rumination wraps me in a most humorous sadness. -- William Shakespeare

Thanks all for the warm welcome. I am feeling a bit better about things now. I think most of my feeling so down was PMS related but I don't know. However, I am really hoping I get a case manager type of person and a therapist soon, as I don't really have many people in that department to help me. I do seem to be having some major social problems that I need to work out, as I don't feel I fit in anywhere really. Bleh.
