I hate to hear about your illnes.  I know when I get sick it puts me in jeopardy of crashing.  The more I lay the more I lay.  When I started accepting my illness and stopped worrying about what people thought it freed up time to discover myself.  It is easier to ward off mood swings if you can identify them early.  Don't get me wrong, it wasn't easy.   Keep your head up and don't shut people out.  Your husband should be your strongest advocate, educate him  :) it's Friday!

I have found that people that don't have BPD don't understand.  It doesn't mean they don't care. they just don't know what to say.  I had great support from friends and family and then I had a the  In-laws that called me everything from crazy to lazy to loon.  The more you talk about it the more comfortable you become with it.  Once you accept it, others will. read my story   http://dailylifewithbipolar.blogspot.com/2009/05/how-i-got-here.html
