I'm new here, wanting to talk with people who can understand me. I'm not new to bipolar disorder though, diagnosed 1996 after years of no one realizing what was wrong.

Sometimes I think I have it mostly together, about the same as most folks, sometimes I feel like I'm hanging by a thread.

I was in good shape for a long time, but US health care system, I lost my job, lost my insurance, ran out of medication, and crawling back from those unmedicated months has been tough. Right now my biggest fear is getting a new doctor, appointment in about 2 weeks, my old doctor is quitting the practice. He was really good, he got me from barely stable to really stable, and then getting me back to stable when life decided I needed trampling on.

My current cocktail is lamotrigine, quetiapine, and lithium. I'm starting to take melatonin on a regular basis because as strange as it sounds I'm starting to have trouble sleeping.

Anyway, hello.

Hi I'm new too. I really feel for u. It's shocking that you can't get your medication cos u can't afford it.
Luckily I'm in Ireland and I have been given a medical card which pays for it as I can't. So my heart goes out to you.
I'm only on quetiapine extended release for now and it's mostly good. I hope you start to feel really well asap. Hope you had a good day:)
