I was diagnosed about 3 years ago and it has been a roller coaster. My husband is extremely supportive and we have 3 boy's ages 6,3 and 1. Our two oldest are Autistic and the verdict is still out on the baby is what the genetisist tells us. This year because of insurance I have lost the ability to get the medication that has always worked best for my Bipolar and I have been off of my medicine since about Feb. Since then my health has declined, I had some more tests done for other issues and was diagnosed with Narcolepsy and Fibromyalgia. I have had these conditions most of my life but I wasn't one to go to the doctors until I started having children. My father is Bipolar and chooses to use heroin for his "medication". That tidbit just scratches the surface of my background that I have been running from for as long as I can remember. I'm hoping this site will help me find a little inner peace and help me to protect my marriage and children from my disease because without my medication everyone suffers, especially my husband, and he doesn't deserve that and neither do I. I want to be happy and take a more active role in our sons' Autism like I used to. Doing the walks and volunteering. Thank you for listening.
