Re: Newby here
I have only been checking out these message boards for about a week now and just by reading other people's posts, I get a sense of...I don't know how to describe it....belonging? Maybe. Just that I feel like I'm not alone. I can tell people about the time I was soooooooo manic I did (blank) and they won't respond with a, "Holy crap! What is wrong with you?!" Instead you get, "Well, this one time I did THIS." I think this place is great and I'm glad I found it. I hope you feel the same.
As far as your medication goes, there are programs established by drug companies to offer free medication. I am not really in need of this program so I have not looked into it. Plus, I do not want to abuse the resources that are out there for people who truly need it. You can google "Free Medication" and you will eventually come across one of these programs.
Best of luck to you. I hope you find some comfort on these boards.
