1st time i hear of manic depression. well i always wanted 2 b an artist, singer... although both parents work, finance was a problem 4 further studies. i continued painting and selling it and still sings @ weddings and birthday whenever im invited. my BIGGEST dream is 2 publish a book which i wrote for the past 4 yrs. editing needs 2 b done. the theme of book: True forgiveness brings about inner healing. otherwise i am content with what im doing now, working with kids & performing as clown @ kiddies parties whenever needed! have a great and da lotsa love!
Don't give up on your dreams!! Not ever!1 Bipolar is a mood disorder when your moods swing from extremely high to extreme depression.  There is a lot of pain,  mostly emotional but that translates to physical too.  I also have social phobia from an abusive relationship, too.  That will not hold me back.

In those difficult times the routines we establish help us just do our tasks automaticly.  Just out of habit.  Are your tablets addictive?  Do you have a strict sleep schedule?  My disorder requires that you keep a strict sleep schedule, because problems sleeping are often a sign of bigger things to come.  What circumstances do you feel oppressed by?  We can talk them out, because two minds are better than just one!

You must have a routine sleep schedule before you go off tablets.  I don't like the way your husband treats you!  I don't know what the standards are in SA but here in the US we have a lot of families with money trouble.  Sit down with him and list all of the purchases both of you make.  See where you can cut.
