Hi there,

My therapist recommended that I join this group. After looking around for a couple of days, I decided it would be a good idea to talk to people who have had similar experiences and problems. I've been ambivalent about the bipolar II diagnosis and the medication for the past three years. But that changed recently after I had a nightmarish weekend that convinced me that my skepticism is dangerous and inhibiting. Besides my therapist, I don't have anyone to whom I can turn for support. I've told family members and a couple of close friends, but I don't feel comfortable talking about it or calling them when I'm at my worst. I need to join this kind of group so that I can hear other people's stories and share mine, and so that I can see how others live and function with Bipolar II.

Thanks,

serenitynow
