Hi all!! I'm Amy. I'm a 34 yo SAHM of two children. A 14yo daughter and 6yo son. My wonderful husband and I have been married for 15 years and together for 18 years.
I was just diagnosed BP (rapid cycling??) two weeks ago; although, I have pretty much known for at least the last year that I had to be BP. I think I have been in denial and thought I could "talk myself" out of it. Well, after yet another hard depression, I knew I had to get some help. From my experience, the manic episodes are GREAT and I could live them forever...probably not the smartest thing for anyone, but oh I love that energy/high!!
However, the depressions have gotten so BAD that the high days aren't worth keeping. Does that even make sense???
I have been reading posts all day today and am excited that I have found a community of people like myself!!
Everyone seems so helpful, kind and understanding! I'm so glad I found this site, as I don't feel so alone anymore.
Well, I just wanted to introduce myself and I look forward to getting to know you all.
