How are you feeling now that you're back on the meds, gaz? Have you noticed any change? Do you feel any different?

Ask me about my Bipolar Disorder!

Hopefully this time the meds work for you. I know you have been struggling on and off of them. Best wishes!

Hope you're feelin better. Thank goodness for family and friends that look after us. I know the feelin, it's weird...we think we're doin ok but the ones who know us the best see the true colors.  I know what you mean when you say even your dog took the brunt of it.  That happened to me too one time and when I finally came around I felt so guilty!  I made sure to give her extra time when I was feelin

I hope this new batch of meds work for you!

All the best.
