Hello and welcome, Heather. I'm sorry you are still very depressed. Bipolar is hard to deal with at times. That up and down of mania and depression is difficult to live with. I assume that you are on meds. Have they been adjusted recently?

When I am really depressed I try to make myself be around people and I do a lot of walking. I just try to do those activities that normally bring me pleasure. It seems to help some. I hope you feel better soon. It's hard to feel sad all the time.

This is a very supportive group and you will find help with your struggles here. Feel free to post elsewhere as well.

Welcome to the group Heather. It is very nice to meet you. My heart goes out to you right now. I understand depression and hospitalization. It will take a while after your meds are adjusted to feel the difference. Please be patient and know that this too shall pass.

Hi Heather, I haven't been around that long either, but long enough to that if you have a question, someone here has been there and done that. Hold on and feel better soon!
