Hi, my name is Barb. I was diagnosed with bipolar in 2013, at the age of 59. I'm now almost stable. When first diagnosed. I spent a lot of time on this forum, and it helped me a lot. It was awesome to finally find people who understood my struggles. Then my meds began to cause anhedonia and I left the forum. Now my psychiatrist wants me to go to a support group at the hospital. It's only 15 blocks, but I don't own a vehicle and it's not safe to walk at night. I'm very glad this forum is still here. Thank you.

I am a bipolar woman who is 68 years young. I am a retired RN and enjoy painting, exercise and reading. Trying to find a support group with similar diagnosis. And good ideas. Especially about insomnia and what you do to help it and what doesn't help. My recent psychiatrist would not address my insomnia so am returning to another person who did help me and does have a caring heart.

Confused Re: Welcome to the Bipolar Forum (part 2)

Hello there

I'm bipolar ii... Sometimes, it is less hard to drag myself to do things. Lately, since I'm a migrant and unemployed for the last months, I've had one of the longest episodes.
My mania laated around a month, and of course, now I'm down trying to resurface but don't have the energy to fight for myself or my son, whom I haven't seen for two years bc i left behind...
Life can be so awful

I used to take Latuda, and I took Abilify at one point also. I do not remember why I stopped taking Latuda, but it was not because of a bad side-effect. As for the Abilify, it made me wet the bed. It obviously made me relaxed!


I'm sorry I cannot be of more help; it has been a long time since I took either one. I hope someone else here can tell you more.

Hi, I'm Jacob and I've been diagnosed with BPII.


I've been reading this forum for nearly a year now but have never really posted but figured it was time to get more involved.


I was diagnosed at the beginning of last year and it's been pretty full on since that point what with all the medication I've had to start taking and the depressive episodes I've been through this year but I'm hoping 2019 will be a lot better!

Default Re: Welcome to the Bipolar Forum (part 2)

Hi there everyone, I was diagnosed with Bipolar Disorder in 1980 and though prescribed Lithium at the time, I only used it for a few days. I never took any medication (though plenty of alcohol), and subsequently went through a rocky road for the first 15 years, but eventually by 20 years I was mostly free from deep states of depression, and alternatively delusions of grandeur. Now I think most people I interact with would not be aware that I was ever a sufferer of bipolarity. The main reason I attribute to my transcending the terrible condition, is learning to, and subsequently over many many years practicing mediation. It takes time, but it worked for me and my original psychiatrist who saw me in 2001, over 20 years after his diagnosis, told me that as a result of seeing my recovery, coupled with his witnessing the terrible side effects of Lithium on his patients he subscribed it to over that time, I had done the right thing in not taking it.
