Anymore, being a psychologist means you specialize. You all have helped me to see that I need to work with bipolar people. I found many of you to be hurting and it breaks my heart that I am of little use to you here. What has come sharply into focus is what this illness does to the psyches of the suffers. I see you all as interesting, valuable, intelligent, caring, sensitive and a host of other positive attibutes. I know I'd like to work with people who have this to offer me from the other side of the couch. I don't see you all as broken, or in need of fixing. I certainly don't see you all as crazy!!! I just see real and honest people who need support and here we offer it. I hope to do this in a different way in the near future.

Thank you for showing many things I didn't know and teaching me a thing or two I needed to learn.
