    And, this will all be available on your smartphone or other mobile device!

    What Do You Need to Do?

    The message board you're used to will be closing in the coming weeks. While many of your boards will be making the move to our new home, your posts will not. Want to keep a discussion going?

    Hi all,

    I want to share some good news. I have received feedback from a publisher that they are going to publish the book that I have written regarding my experience with depression and Bi-polar disorder.

    Prior to publication, in case anyone is interested, I have put the 1st page of each chapter on my website

    So some good news on Friday 13th !

    bye for now. Bi-polar Carl.

    Thank you all so much for your supportive comments.

    I'll post a link to the book when it's available on the publisher's website.

    The main lession I've learned through all the suffering, is to Never Lose the Belief that IT WILL get better!

    Take care all,
