    Hi,

    I was doing some research on bipolar as I am in the process of being assessed for it.
    When I came across beyond Blue community, I thought I should join.. In hopes it could help me through I'm guessing is going to be quite a journey.

    So... Hello to you all.
    Betty46.

    hi and welcome to beyond blue.

    this is a good and safe place to talk. There is also a thread ...

    https://www.beyondblue.org.au/get-support/online-forums/staying-well/this-bipolar-life

    you might be interested in looking at. If not there, then check out the social area.

    We are all on a journey of some type. I call myself a work-in-progress. We all do the best we can and that is all we can do?

    looking forward to seeing you around the space.
