    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

    Welcome to Grumpy Groupies!!! This group is open to every one. I hope that all my buddies will join and use it often. Sad or happy, NO discussion is taboo. I do ask that you use Trigger in the title when necessary. Hopefully we can have fun and also support those who are having a hard time. Muahs

    Hi all. I know I have not posted here in ages. I have been busy with my life but it is stressful. I have mixed emotions right now trying to decide which direction I want to go to. Some people will be happy and support me and there are going to be some not so happy.

    My job is getting to be too much even though its one day a week. Some people tell me to get over it but they don't live inside of my dealing with bipolar. I was recently hospitalized for the depression (crashed). I still don't feel that well but am OK. I didn't get much support from friend and family either.

    I have a hard decision to make to either keep the job i have or quit and find another job but thats going to be difficult. Maybe I need time to heal first from the trauma I have experienced a year ago. Its now in the court system. It does look like its leaning towards a trial. which adds more stress. It makes me want to do something to help relieve the pain I am in.

    I am not sure what I want to do right now. I do plan to talk to my T about it on Tues.

    I guess thats my update for now until I figure out what I want to do.

    Hey Honey bunny, since your under so much stress and it sounds like your not quite as stable as you would like to be, have you thought about going on SSI. Then you can have a bit of a rest and when you feel better, you can go back to work.

    You know, your a real sweet heart and you supported me when I was down. You sent me that most beautiful night light with those yummy smelling wax. I would like to do something nice for you. So if you want, you can email me and I will give you my phone number and we can talk and perhaps you can get some things off your chest. Just a thought. Big hugs and lots of muahs
    When all else fails, go Bipolar all over their azzes!!

    Hi Beej -

    I'm so sorry you're going through what sounds like a very difficult time to say the least. I hope you are able to get the support you so deserve from family and friends, and I hope your therapist will be there for you every step of the way.

    Hugs
    Mercy
