Been gone for too long! Roll Call!

Had computer issues that made getting on the boards a real pain, now have a new one & surprised by all the changes but especially by how quiet this formally VERY active board seems to be.  Where has every body gone--are you lurking?  Lets get a roll call going, now that I'm back I'm eager to meet all that have joined in my absence as well as reconnect with old friends.

Marci-59, Kansas City, MO, dx'd 12 years ago (FINALLY, but seems like just yesterday), on disability; DD, 25 who is an education grad student, lives with me along with GS, 6 who has just been dx'd ADHD

Hugs to all,  Marci

Hi Marci and welcome back.

I know the boards have been a major pain.  I am glad you didn't give up.

When you first sign in, wait for awhile before selecting anything, and i think it finally connects.

What helped you to cope with your bipolar symptoms?  Medications, therapy?

I remember you and have to wondered what has happened too. I've began to be a lurker a while go but only because I didn't really have much to share. I remember when your GS was born, has it really been 6 years, WOW!!

I'm Debbie, diagnosed in 2002, on Serquel, Lithum and Lamictal for the BP. I had a really rough 3 yrs bipolar wise and health wise. I'm a stay at home mom/home educator to 3 kids, 16,14 and 11. My Dh is an over the road trucker and home maybe 2 days every 2 weeks. I'm on disability and the kids get it from me. We live in Morthern UT which is reallyl sunny right now.

I hope the board gets more active to and I will try to be here more often to.
