Unhappy dealing with bipolar

im 43 and was dianoised bipolar years ago,and im still learning how to live with it and understand why i need the meds i take just to be sane...the rapid cycling of my mood maina is about the worse for me to deal with on a day to day base.i know its all part of being bipolar1..its still hard to make friends when they all turn away when you mention you are bipolar....not to mention not knowing when you are going to become in a mania state.
i dont drive to go to any support groups or a what can i do

Re: dealing with bipolar

Hi Dark..
I Am Mslainie And My Son Has Bipolar. Also My Daughter Has Adha. Now To Me My Kids Are My Kids And Normal...i Enjoy And Get More Sometimes Talking To You And The Board, Who Could Be Bipolar Or Not. I Am 41. I Have Learned The Hard Way Friends Do Come And Go.
I Am Lucky Enough To Have 1 Or 2 From Grade School But I Dont Talk To Them We Are All Busy. I Think If Anyone Gets To Know You Or Me If They Cant Except Us For Who We Are Then They Dont Deserve To Be Our Friend. My Son Has Very Few Friends At 15 1/2 But The 1 Or 2 Are Good Friends. Even My Family And My Ex's Family Act Funny Towards My Kids And They Are Blood. My Kids 15 & 13 Feel This And I Just Say They Don't Understand You.
Also You Do Not Have To Explain Yourself To A Friend. I Am Very Picky Who I Tell About My Kids Even Relatives.
Good Luck And Keep With The Board. We Have 2 Therapists And They Help My Kids And Me.. Also There Are Services That Will Pick You Up Or Come To Your Home. There Is Help For You.
Take Care.

Cool Re: dealing with bipolar

thank you so much for your reply....when alot of my family found out im bypolar they all ran from me as if i have the plague.
even my ex-husbend was telling every-one i was crazy witch didnt help at father said it is all in my head that i want to be this way........................

but i have some how gotten lucky enough to find an man who knows and fully understands bipolar...he is here for me he dont make fun of me and hehelps me along the way each and every day...when i told him im bipolar dan looked at me and said and so.he loves me in spite of the bipolar....
he is my guiding light...
