Bipolar people -- welcome

Rejoice and cry, our motto.

A hearty welcome to all who go through life with bipolar, ADHD, major depression, OCD, or any other mental illness.

You are not alone.

Sometimes I feel like I am special, like special education.
But our differences can help us see the world in an unusual way. That might be just what the world needs in this time of trouble.

Just spent about eighteen months in my house except for grocery shopping and that was hell. Unplugged the phone, everything. Online search for help when I could find enough muster to look were so awful. Every antidepresser site is a pay for with no meaningful info. Litigious fears no doubt. Was really surprised how difficult it was to find online help . The last month has improved, and I don't know why. I don't think I am bipolar but ADD might be part of the mix. Over the years tried welbutrin and zoloft and they were just awful. A doctor hooked me on very high dosage of xanax 8mg. a day and it nearly killed me getting off of it. Xanax and booze are the only drugs that can kill when quitting. I should have researched in advance, but doc's never mentioned addiction at all for the first 5 years. Also this information was not online at least in a easy to find way. Nice of you to post one for those of us who suffer in silence.
