had an origional diagnosis of bipolar then after a hospitalization, classified as chemical imbalanced depression, and now bipolar 2. years of med not helping and now totally new meds. i don't have manic episodes, just the opposite. i just want to feel like a normal person. so tired of taking meds. and not feeling any better. my husband is ready to leave like every other day. today he told me how mad at me he is, even though he knows its not my fault. i don't think he's wrong for that, just i can't even take care of my own emotions, much less his. i've suffered through 15 years of his being self-employed, bankruptcies, sometimes even counting pennies to buy groceries, etc and been very supportive. what makes my illness any different? go to a support group, something! goodness knows i've done whatever i have to for him when he needs it. i'm getting a little angry at him that he has the nerve not to for me.View Thread
I'm new to this site, so please forgive me if i am still learning how this works. this isn't a tip really, just a thank you. i've never had support group experience and i am so amazed to read post where you all are feeling things i feel. i might be a little roller coasterish emotionally, but finally people who understand. Thanks so much for sharing.View Thread
