  • I know about this web site on webmd, its called the bipolar community and u chat with all the other people on there. Odds are someone has done or happen to them at some point. U chatwith people who are BP and they can give advice on what they done or what did they didn't do. They have been in our shoes, and understand u, and they don't judge u
