    Bipolar Pen Pal
    Laurenanniegurl posted:
    Hi, I am in need of a bipolar pen pal. I want to talk about life's issues living with this disorder and hopefully get a small support system to lean on when I am having troubles. I want it to be a two way relationship since it takes effort from both individuals to truly be supportive of each other. If you feel the same way and think you can be very candid then shoot me and email!

    Thanks Lauren
