    Hello everyone....

    Well I am joining the community here for several reasons... First and foremost, I really need the support of others who are empathetic to what I am going through. Second, it is my sincere hope that I can provide strength and find strength in others. Lastly, I hope I can find a place where I can fit in free from judgment and ridicule. Without getting to personal it is fair to say that in my line of work I am often expected to provide help versus need it. I am a mental health counselor. Truth is however, I am severely bipolar and I have a hard time mitigating the impact this has on my outlook and life through medication, education, or any other means. I waiver between wanting to live and wanting to die... I am often withdrawn and reclusive. I lost my father recently and that has been a catalyst for a plummeting downward spiral emotionally, physically, and spiritually. At this point in time, I am here out of sheer self preservation. Thank you for your time.

    I am very glad you found us. Welcome to our community. I believe you will find us to be very good and empathetic listeners and on occasion we have pretty good advice in dealing with situations or coping with problems as they arise. You are facing a number of challenges right now and it may be possible (or likely) you are on a downward swing or low in the bipolar cycle which is not ever a good situation when combined with other problems. Thank you fo rreaching out to us and know we are here to listen to you and support you.


    Take Care and Be Safe
