    Exciting News for WebMD Members!

    We've been busy behind the scenes building new message boards for you. You'll have new and easier ways to find messages, connect with others, and share your stories.

    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? Save posts you want to continue (this includes your member profile story), so that you can re-post them in the new message boards.

    Keep an eye here and on your email inbox, we'll be back in touch soon to give you all the information you need!

    Yours in health,
    WebMD Message Boards Management

    Hi Sweetie, good to see you again. Im so very sorry your having such a tough time. Its hard when loved ones dont understand. Have they even tried to learn about Bipolar?

    Are you a member on the main board? Im sorry, I cant remember. We get ppl on this board who are only members here but arent on the main board. If you post there, then you will get many replies and the replies will come sooner.

    Hope things get better honey. hugs
    When all else fails, go Bipolar all over their azzes!!

    Im really sorry you have to go through this at such a young age.....your very young and your a very pretty girl, you should be happy and enjoying life. But I advise you to get help, from somebody. If your love ones is not willing to help you along the way, then take action yourself. Because it is help out here, and their is somebody that can help you with your situation. Im 21 yrs old, and a while back I use to have these thoughts too. I was always depressed, and was never happy, I wasn't diagnosed with bi-polar or nothing like that, but I did have to take medication for my depression. I had suicidal thouoghts like twice in my life time. For some reason as I grew older, things changed, and I dont want to be too religious for you, but by the grace of GOD, he changed a lot for me. I know I dont know you that good, and we never chatted with each other before, but I do understand what your going through, and I will stick by your side. I will also keep you in my prayers. I really hope you get well, and everything gets better for you, Please keep me posted. And if you ever need somebody to talk, you can always talk to me, I will listen, and I will be here to help you in any way I can. Be safe sweetheart.....
