Hello all,

I just wanted to take a moment and wish everyone Happy Holidays. I hope that you get to spend this time with your loved ones and that it can be a happy time in your life, especially when there are many of us that don't truly know how to be happy. I know that this can be a time of anxiety for a myriad of reasons. Even I had to get an extra prescription to get through all of the craziness that is my family!!

I know that there are many people that are struggling, and I nor my family is an exception, but I am choosing to try to be thankful for getting through another year. It's one more year that my husband still puts up with me, one more that I can be grateful for not giving in to the dark thoughts, and one more year of hope that this doctor and this medicine will be what I need to finally get well. I wish that for all of us here - whether you are living your life and struggling with being bipolar yourself, whether you are in treatment and doing better, or for those that are watching their loved ones struggle with this disorder. It helps me to remember that I am not alone, I am not crazy, and there ARE people that understand what I go through on a daily basis. I hope that all of you have found this relief here as well.

I wish you all to have a wonderful holiday, and hope that next year will be a better year. We can't lose hope. If we lose hope, then we let this beat us, and I know that no matter how hard it gets or what obstacles there are, we are all stronger than this disorder.

Wishing you all some peace of mind, body, and heart,

I would like to add my wishes to everyone as well.

I think one of my biggest achievements this year has been finding this forum where everyone is facing many of the issues I have. This forum has also given me the opportunity to express myself honestly for the first time - no one judges me here for having bipolar or sexual abuse issues or food issues. My neighbours and relatives are happier not to see me because they think I am defective. It is great to be around non-judgmental people. I hope this forum continues to flourish in the next year and I hope the members can make deeper and more meaningful friendships. Thank you everyone for making this such a wonderful place.

I am off to Delhi to visit my psychiatrist. I am getting a new counselor next year, but sadly most of my communication will have to be via phone or e-mail since there is no mental health facility in Kuwait or any of the Gulf countries.

Dear Living with BPD,
Thank you so much for your very kind words. You said it so well. I am in total agreement with you and wish the same for everyone around here as well.
Lets all keep pushing ahead. We can all get by with a little help from our friends.

Ok, let's start a new saying:

2008 may not have been so great But 2009 is going to be Oh So Fine!
