    i was wondering if anyone knows of a support group like ours for bi-polar disease. my very dear friend or 40 yrs was diagnosed 2 yrs ago. she is seeing a new psych on monday but told her of this group and think it would be a wonderful place for her. she just moved to a town 45 minutes away from me, and she doesn't know anyone there.

    thanks

    We do have a Depression board here. Many of the members suffer from Bi-Polar disorder.

    We do not have one especially for Bi-Polar though.

    HOpe this helps.

    If your friend is on AOL, look under the Health Channel and then under "Boards" and depression. Otherwise do a search under Yahoo or Google and I am sure you will find other places. There is lots of support on the net for all sorts of afflictions.

    I am bipolar as well, and following is a link to a message board that I really like.

    http://forums.about.com/ab-bipolar

    People there seem to be very friendly and have a lot of great information. I haven't actually posted there in a while, but I read the info a lot. Hope this helps. Also, you can give here my e-mail addy if you would like. I would be happy to talk to her. I was dx'd many moons ago, and know what it feels like to not have anyone to "connect" with on the subject. My e-mail address is searchin4me@hotmail.com. Tell her that if she e-mails me to put something in the subject about Bi-Polar so that I won't think it's junk mail.....I have a habit of glancing through my mail and deleting it if I don't recognize the names.
