Hi Frances I have bipolar disorder too with some anxiety issues (amongst other things!). It's good to see you hear and welcome you on board. We have a small but steadily growing membership from the States but I think you're our first from Florida. Hope to see you round the forum!

Good afternoon

:hug:Hello frances:welcome: Its very hot here 2 day hows the weather wiyh u. I came florida in 1986 ish i know i seemed 2 have 2 save 4 ages b4 travelling but it was fab, 2 c mickey n friends i was 24 @ the time n i just felt like a child all excited by it all. It was sad the company i was with @ the time she could turn milk sour( gosh did i just say that) I have 2 say florida was the only good thing i got out of a 5 year marriage thats how i know how good it was there, just getting out of my world of depression @ the time was fantastic, though now a holiday would have 2 b much more chilled out in spain by a cool swimming pool. How do u cope with the fast pace of life there with your condition i guess it must b difficult when u r manic, (do u go a spending spree) Ive only been manic once n i spent a fortune. Take care james

Hi James

It is very hot here now. I do not go out very much. I am kinda like a hermit. I get very stressed when I go out. Yes, I do go on spending sprees. Too many to count. Glad you liked Disney World. I've only been there two times since I've lived in Florida (24 years). Besides BD, I am also physically disabled. Have a bad back so I can't walk very much. Good to hear from you. Wish you luck with your illness.

Fran

Thanks

Thanks, guys, for welcoming me to forum. I already feel better knowing others share my experiences with mental illness. This is almost as good as group therapy.

My uncle drove a truck and lived in Akron, Ohio (he's passed on now), but my cousins still live in Akron. What a small world. I am originally from West Virginia, been in Florida for 24 years now.

What is your diagnosis? Glad to hear from you.
