Chicki: I can call you Chicki?

Glad you reached out for help, and to help others.

I have bipolar, also. I take Lithium for the bipolar, and Mirtazapine for the depression.

How are things going for you now?

Since you are also here to help, I have trouble with transportation because of some health issues, and one of the problems from not being able to get out, is I now have diabetes.

I can do anything I want, as long as it's 75 feet from my house.

When this problem first hit me, I was like, "I can't go anywhere!!!!" I had six years of that. I couldn't even go to the doctor. I could not ride in a vehicle.

I finally got where I could ride in the back seat of a car. Big improvement. I could now go to the doctor.

What also helps is I try to walk my dog once a day. People encourage me to walk further distances and I do. What also helps is I get home health care, and people come in here to drive me to the doctor's office and I get socialization from that.

Are your conditions causing you any problems right now?

Hi Michele,

Welcome to the forum smile!

I am happy you joined us. Thank you for sharing a bit about yourself. I suffer from depression, some pain due to a car accident and some other stuff.

How are you coping with your anxiety, etc.? I use distractions and practice mindfulness to help with my depression.
I hope you find the forum supportive as I did, and I look forward to learning more about you.
