hey everyone,
im back on the boards as it is spring break and although we have a test when we get back im not studying until maybe next thursday.
how is everybody doing? karen? erik? kitt? i hope you guys weren't too worried when i suddenly fell out of the face of the earth. the nursing program i am in is rigorous and all the time i had was spent either studying or sleeping. i also found a friend with bipolar as well over at a support group and we've been hanging out watching movies and such. im pretty stable at the moment, taking seroquel, lamictal (titrating up on both), zyprexa (titrating down), lexapro and klonopin. i don't want to say im in remission  but i haven't cycled in about 3 months. im bpii btw, but im usually on the depressed side so im on this board instead of the bp board. hope everyone is doing well.

getting by

Hey Trying,

This is such wonderful news!!! I am glad to hear that you are doing good. When somebody doesn't post for a while, we usually figure they are busy or doing really well, sounds like you were doing both. I am so happy for you.

Keep up the good work. Have a happy Easter! I can't believe that it came up so fast. Keep us posted on how you are doing.

Spring has sprung here, hope to be able to go mushroom hunting soon. We still have a lot of snow in the woods yet.

Take care my friend. Stick around and let us know how things are going.

Hugs, karen

Heeja Elly (if I remembered your name correctly :-) )

Awesome to hear things are going OK! And also wonderful to hear you are attending a support group, as that was something you were a bit afraid of at first, or am I wrong?

Anyway, I am still rolling, though the roller coaster is getting wilder. The downs are even more down, but the ups are also better. And I have the feeling that I am much less-aborbed now, especially in my highs, so that is probably beneficial for persons and things and animals around me. And little messages like you remembering me are helping me to stay in that more happy state :-). So thank you!

If you have the time, I would love to hear more from you! Maybe we can have a chat Tuesday (or any other time).

Take care Miss Awesome!
