    my name is emily and i live in the UK- i actually tried signing up on here a few days ago (but it turned out to be the back up website and not the real site, lol!)

    anyway, i'm here for many reasons

    1. to connect with other people who are bipolar (i've been bipolar since a really young age, and could do with some friends who know what it's like)

    2:. i also have borderline personality disorder, so support with that would be good too

    3:. i'm in a wheelchair and require round the clock support, so perhaps i'll share some insight on that

    4:. i guess just to vent, and talk to you all- i'm at a stage of my life where i'm not even sure what's what anymore, and even if i want to be here

    so hi all, i guess

    Hi Emily,

    Nice to meet you. I'm also bipolar, but I have only been diagnosed as such a few years ago. Since it sounds like you've been aware of your bipolar disorder for longer than I have, maybe you could tell me a little bit about what the illness is like for you. I know so few other bipolar people.
    I read this poem in my sixth grade literature book, and it's stuck with me ever since.
    "Life is a water wheel. It turns. The trick is to hold your nose when you're under, and not get dizzy when you're up."
    It's one of those things that doesn't really encourage me, but it makes me feel better because it articulates how I feel about bipolar.
    I hope you find what you're looking for on this site.

    hey rachel.

    thanks for the poem... very inspiring indeed!

    i like the username too- what does it mean?

    i'm guessing their is a deeper meaning to being a fan of the letter Z?

    sure i'll be happy to anser your questions on bipolar, or in deed anything else.

    feel free to PM me anytime
