After another sleepless night, I am encouraged by this community. Before recently being diagnosed with BD, I thought my problems were something I just had to live with. My new psychiatrist has been a breath of fresh air. He understands what is going on and provides excellent help and counsel.
This is my first post, so I will close for now. Will post again soon.

You may go through life hearing a 1000 NO's but don't give up because your YES is out there waiting for you.- (Something my father told me.)

Hi Anne, and welcome. Ditto to what everyone else is saying. Anything we can do to help you, or any advice you might need, just ask away. If we don't know the answer Dr. Goldberg might. He's awesome. Almost makes me wish I lived in NY just so I might be his patient. Not that I really want to give up my fantastic doctor. Glad you finally found someone who understands you. That's half the battle right there. Anyhow, welcome and good luck. Take care.
