Hello everyone,

I am looking for a site where most people can empathize with how I feel.  I could really use a therapist but I need to wait until I can afford it; just started new job and had drained my savings prior to that. So instead of therapy, I decided on a support group thing. None in my area. So here I am, visiting your site after a google search. 
I can't offer support to anyone at this point in time - but I know this will pass and maybe I be of help then.

Currently I feel quite empty and emotionless with flashes of aggitation and/or anxiety and/or crying spells.  I hate it.  My anxiety is to the point that I'm having heart palpitations. My depression makes me lethargic.

The Basics:
I'm 3 months away from being 30 (female).
I have been mostly unhappy and anxious since birth, I think.
I currently take lamictal for bipolar d/o.
I have a long history of abuse - all the varieties from a variety of people.
I have major anger managment problems and have been violent and verbally abusive toward my husband.
I have no close friends; only superficial relationships (except for my husband).
My mother is severely mentally ill.
I think I am crazy.

So if anyone out there can just listen for a while, maybe give words of wisdom, then maybe I can climb out of this black hole.

Thanks for reading.

Hi Julia,

Welcome to this board. I don't really have any pearls of wisdom but I can most assuredly say that you can and will receive support through this board. The people here are open, caring and sincere. Please continue to post. as you let others here know about you, they will offer advice/inspiration.

I am dx with Bi-PolarII, which means I cycle rapidly between moods. I was in a major depression when I started here. I am still hurting but have found comfort and safety amoungst this group. I hope you will too!

Best to you,
