    Please restore the "Bipolar doesn't need any explanations" thread as per thread title. It's a very good thread and it seems wrong to be kept locked away in teacher's desk ;) Thanks

    Can the world really be against me ?

    Hi. New here.

    Hesitant to post. Starting a day program tomorrow. Been there before. Was either that or hospital or worse. I'm nervous, we aren't historically good at or interested in socializing. Would rather be locked in a closet until this period is over. With wifi, of course. Lol.
