The support of a loved one close to me got me through,my family docs social worker teachers,policeman and women..total strangers...people are people and we help those who are in need. My story is same as many people.when we are in the deepest depressed state,we think only of us,our life,,,how wrong we are,low self esteem, all the "negative goodies."....its painful for us and our family.However with the support of friends,support groups self help books philosphy,good sites...www.rssb.org has helped me...www.bpolar.com,,,films, the auto bio about the Dr with bipolar...fogot her name US lady ....Dr Redfield Jamieson?????-meds sleep love love love of ourselves.By ourselves this is first step."I will get better,I want to,for my sake,for my famuly/" Im nearly 60 now lost my mum.at young age..zoom into madness.self pity.My doctor told me One in six are bipolar....In US bipolar is been successfully treated with lithium and other meds..moreover WE bipoars MUST desire to improve.Mental affirmation..I want I try I am doing ok..mean it DO IT and on way...

Very well put. I especially like your positive self affirmation. My daughter has gone through a real bad depression and does not seem to be able to reach deep into herself for positive thoughts.
