I am a 27 year old women who has struggled with BP since I was 8 years old.
Recently my BP has taken a strange turn....and I am having problems cognitivly.
I have BP 1 w/ ultra-rapid cycling and episodes of psychosis.
Luckily I have only been hospitalized once.
i currently Have not job because of the problems Im sure you know comes along with it.
I am hope'n to get one in a few weeks,...a decent one though.
im terrfied that my BP will sneak up and bite me in the ass like it always does.
I feel often like im rolling this huge ball up a hill and I never ever have end in site.
Some days I just want to let go and let it run me over.....but I usally dont.
Im here for moral support and to be of help to others.
I think although I still experiance alot of problems with my illness it is mostly under control.
Then again, we all know its never really in our hands is it?

Welcome NYX
I'm bi-polar as well since I was a teenager and now Im 52. A great thing that you seem to posses is your acceptence of of the illness is really so important. It took me almost 30 yrs to be diagnosed Bi-polar and ten years to accept it.But now since the right meds for are helping and lots of therapy, I am ready to start volunteering a little.
I know just what it feels like to be afraid of the next cycle as well. I bet it is normal to feel this way. If you see people in a different chat room, most of us just go in and chat with everybody I don't see many in our kind of chat room but just go in and listen. Im new too and I find the different people are very supportive and nice.

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
