True resilience develops from a body and mind that have been carved out of challenge and failure
Wow! I am so happy I found this site. I have been trying to find a community of others with bipolar disorder that would embrace me with open arms. I have been struggling since around the time I was diagnosed at just thirteen years old. I am now twenty-seven and I mother of two. I have suffered significantly since having children; I have been hospitalized involuntarily twice since becoming a mom to my two toddler-aged children. I suffer from Type II, so I mostly deal with depression. I keep a mental health blog and it is extremely therapeutic to me. The blog address, for those interested, is thelotusletter.blogspot.com
I am eager to hear all of your thoughts about Bipolar and your experiences. I am feeling truly grateful to be a part of this group.
