I am new to this site and I wanted to say hi and hopefully get some response back. I have bipolar disorder, sever depression, panic/anxiety attacks and I dont really have any friends. It seems that when people find out that you have a mental illness they shy away from you or just brush you off; so I try to play the normal game but that doesnt work either. So I just dont even bother to try and have friends anymore too much energy which I dont have plus it is very depressing and I dont need anymore of that.
just thought I would say Hi and hope everyone is doing well.
Hi Maggie. I'm one of the regulars on this community.
This is a Borderline Personality site. Bipolar is very different from Borderline. I believe there is a Bipolar community on WebMD. You are certainly welcome here but you may find the Bipolar community a better fit for you.
I'm strong willed and I tell it like it is. I make mistakes, I'm sometimes out of control, but I love and give with all my heart. Have patience with me as I heal.
