Hun, dont worry about statistics, I try not to pay any attention to them.
My sister in-law was born with a heart defect and the Dr.s said she wouldnt live past 5 yrs old. Well she made it past 5 yrs old, then made it past 10 yrs old and the Dr.s kept telling her that she wouldnt live past this age and that age. After a while she didnt pay any attention to the Dr.s and she didnt worry. She knew that she wouldnt live to an old age, but she was always so happy and had a great out look on life. Of course the Dr.s kept telling her she was going to die, blah blah blah. My sister in-law lived to be about 28 yrs old. Not bad for someone who was supposed to die before she turned 5.
Bipolars can be stable. I am a heck of a lot more stable then I was 10 yrs ago. I have no intention of killing myself.
Kitten honey, I agree with you. Its not easy to get over many things. Ive seen different therapist for over 11 yrs, and I still havent gotten over many, many problems, no matter how often we work/worked at it. It just isnt that simple.
So sorry you have so many phobias you have to deal with. It must be quite hard. Big hugs honey.View Thread
