Hi my name is Jan,
I have had Bipolar for as long as I can remember. My father had it when I was in my early teens and was very abusive he self medicated his whole family suffered from it but they never seek help except for one if his sisters my Aunt Deloris, she is the one I take after big time.
I always knew I was different but as young girl I couldn’t put my finger on it very depressed all the time when I became older and got married and had an affair I totally felt so much guilt I considered counseling and went, when she seen me for about 4 sessions she asked me if I was willing to see the Psychiatrist that worked in the same office, I agreed and got excited thinking hey maybe there is a name for all of what I am feeling, that was in the year 2000. Here I am today with having Bipolar DX for 13 years and I have been stable for the last 8 I run an online support group for people whom don’t have a voice yet it is a wholesome environment a safe haven if you will,
The web site is interested no pressure is at www.bipolar4lifesupprt.com I have been a Root Admin/owner there for the past 8 years this is not to pressure someone to join it is just something I am greatly proud of I accomplished something for the good of us I am an advocate for NAMI did walks and volunteered when I can.
I hope to meet more people like me and to try to help and support them at the best that I can the web site has many featured blogging, gallery, arcade for fun, chats times, and games on the forum, we take every post importantly and there are no clicks everyone is treated equally again I feel proud of what I have done when I am out of work for the past 13 years I feel I accomplished something I think it is important for those whom feel alone to find a safe place where they fit in and find their voice.
Peace and LOL,
