Hi there, I'm new here. I came to try and utilize the support here and maybe meet some people who struggle with mental illness and also be a support to them. I have bipolar one disorder and I'm currently having a manic episode. Not looking forward to the depressive episode that follows. I think I need to be equipped with new coping skills. I love music and exercise, but I'm getting burned out. Any ideas? #bipolarasf *@k..... Also I started a chat group if anyone wants to join! It's not limited to anyone, so come join with your comments and questions. I'd love to talk to you! I delt with this for a while now and I'm a certified peer support specialist, I'm so excited I found the mighty!https://themighty.com/groups/bipolar1sufferers
