I just joined this forum and saw your posting from December and wondered how you are doing?
I too have depression and have many family members as well with Bipolar etc. I have also been diagnosed with IBS, Insterstitial Cystitis, have had multiple ulcers, lower disc degneration, fibromylagia and so on...
Everyday is a struggle especially if you don't have the proper supports in place. I find that attitude is 98% of trying to cope.
If interested let me know and we can chat further.
