Hello everyone, I am new to the discussion boards. I have used webMD for years but never the forums. I am newly diagnosed Bipolar 2. I was hospitalized back in February and spent a total of 5 1/2 weeks inpatient was released on March 30th. In April I received my diagnosis from my pdoc. I have been on a whole slue of meds since February trying to get one that worked or one that I did not have a really bad reaction to. It is scary, but I am trying very hard to keep my family together and to seek help when I need it and to know my signs and symptoms of this disorder. I look forward to getting to know you all and learning more about this disorder.
