Nothing like an intro post! I'm here to help others as well as to seek help, when I need it. I'm pretty sure I have Bi-Polar disorder, I can be happy and carefree for weeks and for no reason or from some obscure trigger fall into a crippling, suicidal depression from anything to hours to weeks. I have a very helpful and understanding family, unfortunetly I work overseas so they really cannot help me very much. When in my lows I think of suicide frequently, but I'm pretty set in never going through with that because I know how badly it would effect my family. This does not, however, keep me from having these thoughts or make coping with them any easier. I figure here at least I could talk freely when I'm having bad times, and try to offer help when I'm not so bad.
