  1. Hello everyone.


    I've been a reader for a long time I just got brave enough to register and post.

    A little about me:

    I'm a long time sufferer of bipolar disorder. I'm usually extremely depressed and made a few sad attempts at suicide (Nobody even knew):sad:

    I was on medication for a while then got off of it because I felt it was doing nothing but make me gain weight.

    I feel compelled to join this community because I think I need to talk to someone about how I feel before It's too late.

    I have Insomnia I rarely sleep at night, I fall asleep between 4-6AM.

    Ironically, I'm a great listener and talked my best friend out of suicide back when I was in High School. He thanks me almost daily even til this day.

    I guess that's all I can think of now..

    So Hello.. I hope to make many friends here

    Congrats on finding the courage to join, I'm sure it will pay off!

    At the moment, I'm trying to talk someone down from the edge and I know how hard it is so you should be really proud of being such a great help to your friend.

    Take care!

    I've been listening to this song a lot today, I think I've ran out of tears now and although it is a very sad song I think it is very helpful. I haven't listened to it for ages, completely forgot about it til I come across this forum.

  15. Thank you for the warm welcome everyone. I went to the doctor yesterday and took the step to go back on meds. He gave me .5 mg of Abilify(the side effects were so bad last night I was up sick) and 37.5 of effexor which i took before..

    so time will tell ...

    Any thoughts on Abilify?
