    Im bipolar and have recently hit a low. Its hard to talk to people who don't suffer with depression as they don't understand. Hoping for like minded people to help

    Hi, welcome to SF. I think this is a good place to talk things out and find good support. I think you will find more people who understand, because most of us deal with depression and other issues. I hope being here will be helpful for you.

    hi. There are many people here who suffer with bipolar. And many more who suffer with depression. Its a good community. One where you can be honest about how you are feeling. And others will understand. Glad you are here :welcome:

    Thankyou both. its hard for me to talk to friends/family because they all see me as abit of a toughguy. They don't seem to believe me when I talk about my feelings. So its nice to talk to people who have no perception of me I can leave my mask off here

    yes. thats really said often here. That people have to wear a mask or pretend etc irl. They cannot for one reason or another say how they REALLY feel. But here, you can check your mask at the cyber door ! Just be yourself. Say what you really need to say. Be accepted for who you are. SO glad you found us. And now you are one of us !!! I personally have been to a lot of websites. This one is the kindest i have ever found. I think thats because the management is so kind and caring. So you are smart to have come here :D
