Hi sakai

Thanks so much for your post and welcome to our Groups.

I am so sorry you are losing friends and becoming isolated - this is fairly common when people have a condition like bipolar disorder, due to misunderstandings and fears of others who do not comprehend what this disorder is all about.

Have you read our section of biploar disorder? If not, check it out here: http://www.empowher.com/condition/bipolar-disorder/definition

Also, sakai, do you have any support groups near you? I think that's really important. Sometimes only others going through the same thing can understand what's going on and these groups are often lead by a medical professional or someone who has a lot of experience in this mental condition.

Will you let us know what support you are getting and if you need help finding a support group near you? We're here to help guide you in the right direction-

I hope to hear from you soon,

Here you will find encouragement for the hurting, empowering ideas, challenges to the status quo. This is a forum by a "former" bipolar/schizo-affective male who has attempted suicide 3 times, been jailed 3 times, been hospitalized over 15 times, and has found his ultimate fulfillment and purpose in a relationship with the Creator of the Universe. I want to practice love here, and I invite all who are hurting or scared to be transparent here. For no one will judge you or belittle you no matter what crazy things you have done or thought. I used to believe I was God of this Universe- how's that for crazy? I understand the mental problems people have, because I have discovered a way to maintain vibrant mental health, and to always be "moving forward", so to speak, on my long journey towards Heaven. I want to hear your experiences. Your fears. Your challenges. Your angers. I've felt them all, and in ways more intense than I can possibly describe on paper. I nearly went to Hell. I was on the verge- for what seemed like eternities. I knew Hell was but a moment away, if I gave into the darkness that coursed through my very veins. But miraculously God sustained me, through constant prayer, and now I have reached a point where my mind has become strong enough to handle all of my own affairs with no assistance from medication. I want to empower you to drop the SSRI's, the Anti-Psychotics, the Mood Stabilizers- these are nothing but artificial, man-made technologies that don't reach to the heart of the matter- which is the picture of reality you choose to create for yourself in your mind. When Jesus said the Kingdom of Heaven is within you, He literally meant- IT IS IN YOUR MIND AND HEART! ALL ARE WELCOME HERE. LET'S SOLVE OUR PROBLEMS TOGETHER, AND MOVE INTO A FUTURE OF LOVE AND HARMONY AND ETERNITY FOR ALL.
