Thank you for all this useful links in this thread!

I think about starting a group in my area with and for bipolar people, kind of self-help or communication - sharing experiences.
I think I might get some ideas through these adresses how and where to begin.

Hello, I am new to this forum. SOOOOOOOOOOOOO happy to have found it. I have been a fan of Stephen Fry's for quite a while now. Anyway, I like this website http://www.iambipolar.ca/ It also has a forum for discussion of bipolar etc.

Thanks.

Hi I am trying to also find further information on people like Stephen Fry who do not take medication for bi-polar .In the second part of the secret life program Stephen interviewed a lady with bi-polar who had not taken medication for 15 years and was a doctor who stated she takes 3mg of cod-liver oil daily and has a diet high in fish to boost her omega 3 intake I would like to email this lady but I did not get her name ?Does anyone know of other people who manage their bi-polar with a similar diet?



Q: What's your own experience of having bipolar disorder?
Stephen: I approach it from the point of view of one who suffers, according to a psychiatrist at least, from cyclothymia which is sometimes called 'bipolar light'.

I take that to mean I have most of the benefits of hypomania, a slightly less psychotic form of energy, vitality and exuberance and some, one hopes, creativity.There are certainly spending sprees but happily very little promiscuity. That's just my good fortune in this regard.

Q: Do you take medication?
Stephen: I'm fortunate enough not to be medicated or, so far as I can tell, need medication. But the idea that once you start on medication and each time you go off it you seem to get worse is a very grim one. It really is a very serious condition

Im glad I found this thread.

Ive just finished making a website for my uncles book, Bipolar Expedition.

The book Is an autobiographical account of living with the condition and is both dark and funny.

My uncle has also started a blog on there, feel free to contact him by clicking 'get in touch'

Id sooner prefer to have the site used as a platform for discussion on bipolar disorder than as a way to push book sales so please dont take this a...pimp post.

I think this site is aimed at younger people with bipolar/mood disorders.

its an american site and it does push her books a little and her 'health cards' but her blog is interesting and her emails on how to deal with things are useful sometimes... good support for friends and family of people with bipolar too.

Did not want to post this in the other help services thread as it is NOT an emergency help advice line.

I have just joined a site called Patients Like Me - below is a youtube video link descrbing how and why the site was set up

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WQ2PFoHptK8

It looks like a great way of tracking your moods, meds and side effects then comparing them against patients like you.

You have to make quite a lot of info available to all users of the site in order for it to be any use - therefore this may not be appropriate for everyone - however what you enter is your choice - just the more you enter the more useful the data is to everyone and the better your comparison info.

Since I have called this useful links - anyone looking for information
should first check out Katysara's site - http://www.katysaraculling.com/

Happy Browsing

Please check out the PatientLikeMe site - its also on Facebook.

Its an american site but I have had no trouble getting my british meds input.

You only input as much as you want and you don't have to share your info if you are not comfortable.

I have been using this for almost a week and it is great. Feel free to look me up and see my info - it is all shared.

It could answer a lot of queries regarding treatments, Meds, Side Effects etc and there is a forum there too (not as good as this one
