  1. Hola Amiga! I am a Canadian from near Vancouver, BC. I have tried to commit suicide mucho mucho, and it sucks! You feel so silly. Hope all is well with you.

  2. Hi! You were following me as well. i moved to another wordpress address. How can I find you.?

  3. Hi Kait, I can’t seem to find the “follow” button.

  4. Kait – As with others above, I haven’t found a follow button on your blog.

  5. Thank you for following my blog. And let’s not refer to us as survivors, but family. 😉

  6. Hi Kait,

    What a marvelous blog! Like other commentators, I am wondering how to follow the blog, I don’t see a “follow” button to click on.

  8. Kait, I’m unsure of how to follow your blog, but I want to thank you so much for following hungryoga! I can relate to so much of what you say about mental illnesses. I believe much of bipolar disorder can relate to binge eating/overeating/loss of control around food. I hope to stay in touch!

  9. Congratulations, Kait!

    I have nominated your blog for the Blog Of The Year 2013 Award.

  10. Id like to know if there is any response to my despairing blog

  11. I just need to talk to someone who understands. I have been struggling with this disorder for years, was diagnosed in 2004 but no know that I had been misdiagnosed for many years before. I am a 51 year old female who has made havoc of my life. At this point I have been married 3 times. My first marriage was of 20 years and I had 3 children. My 2nd and 3rd marriage only lasted 14 months each. I have 5 grandchildren. If it wasn’t for my children and grandchildren I truly do not know where Id be if at all. I have attempted suicide twice and have been hospitalized twice. I have no career because every job I have becomes too stressful and I always feel its the wrong job like Im never going to find the right one. The same goes for relationships. In every one that I am in I doubt my true feelings for the person even when he can be very loving and supportive. I am tired….tired of trying so hard, tired of just trying to survive. I see a dr and am on medications which are adjusted regularly. I am diagnosed with rapid cycling bi-polar. I hate this disorder and how it has destroyed my life. I never feel ok with myself unless I am in a mania but it is soon followed by being manic and then deep depression. I am on leave with my work right now but have to return in the near future. I don’t want to but cant stand being alone with myself. I have nothing….I feel like nothing….Im so tired…..thank you – I just needed to vent….just do not believe there are solutions out there for me. I want to live a fulfilling life, enjoying my life, being in a healthy relationship – these dreams seem to large and out of reach. Even submitting this comment is not being successful – I have hit submit 3 times and its not taking it.

    • RJ, I don’t know if anyone has reached out to you, but there are larger support communities and groups that have very real, personable people who also go through these difficult cycles. They have found it very helpful to connect to one another either in person or online or by phone on a very regular basis, either one-on-one or in small groups. They get to share their experiences and give good tips and what is working and what isn’t working. Besides any effective or semi-helpful meds one may be taking. (And that’s another thing…keeping each other motivated to stay on their meds consistently. That’s always a toughy, you know I’m sure.) 🙂

      Sister, please let me know if you need help connecting. Love and grace…EP
