Hi everyone.

Long story short. I was need free for about three years.

I just had a baby almost three months ago. I started having my early warning signs, got to the point that I couldn't make a simple decision got assessed and am back on meds again. Baby is bottle feeding now.

I'm glad I knew about my early warning signs, but feel like I don't have anyone to talk to regarding this issue. So thought I would come to the forum.

Thank you. It's quite humbling to admit that I need help. I used to deny the fact that once having bipolar you have it for your life time, but I now know that one does have it and it's just a matter of time before another episode hits. Obviously my triggers are after having children because this is not the first time this has happened

Ahh right. Yeah to say I need help is a big step. You did it though. Go chicky. All I can say is keep plodding onwards!
