So, It took time for me to step in the process to join. I am 23, from spain (please take into account the fact I dont speak english fluently), student. I ve been treated for bipolar disorder since Iam 16, and been stable for 3 years. Patience, internal struggles and comprehension have been my best allies/enemies as for the disorder.I am still struggling though with my suicidal tendancies. I do NOT consider having manic depression illness as a valuable "answer" to feel suicidal- thats my personal opinion. Despite many efforts on myself, I still am struggling with the suicidal thought. After much hesitation, Ive come here, feeling very much depressed about my condition -that I wont share here- but hoping to feel less isolated. Thank you.
