I've been looking around this site and I just want to say thanks for having me. I'm a guy in his early 40's with bipolar, raising my son. Even though I'm on disability, I'm still able to live by myself and maintain a large measure of Independence. For the last year and a half I've been struggling with an inoperable nerve tumor (not that it stopped them from trying to cut it out anyway). With the help of my teenage son I've been able to manage.

I would also like to apologize in advance for being overly chatty and over sharing, it's a side effect of the pain pills.

Once again, thanks for having me and I really hope this works out for all of us.

Welcome to the forum. :hi:
I'd say we're actually quite a chatty bunch and there's always people around chat with, so i'm sure you'll get on just fine. :)

Hi Kirkpatrick and a belated welcome.

I hope you're finding the forum of some use. My story sounds quite similar in parts to yours and I've found it very supportive and friendly.

Don't worry about feeling overly chatty or over sharing; there's nothing wrong with either here.
