Hello everyone.  I too have been diagnosed with Bipolar Disorder and have had to live with the mania's and depressions ever since I can remember.  What I lack in my life is the ability to connect to others who suffer the same circumstances since no one I know is bipolar and I don't even want to try to explain my moods to someone who does not understand at all.  I guess what I'm getting at is that, even though I am realitively adjusted between the therapy and meds, I would love to find someone in a similar situation that would like an e-mail buddy to encourage and listen to each other.  Otherwise these message boards are a great source of information.  Thanks for listening.

You'll meet people hear all right. I go from sleeping over 14 hours per day and not wanting to do anything, to becoming hyper, talking too much and spending alot of money and talking too much and too fast. I have tried many medications during the last several years and am doing better. But for example now I stayed up till 12 and now am up again, not insomnia, I sleep, but never more than 3-4 hours at a time. I haven't been going from very sad to very happy moods though, but youll find others here to help you.
