A Most Helpful Forum:
When it's Not Only Bipolar Disorder

Bipolar Disorder is most often an illness that begins in relative youth.  There are many other illnesses, both mental and physical, that can occur at the same time as bipolar disorder.

As a patient ages other chronic illnesses often come into play ... chronic pain, diabetes, and many more.

That is what this board is all about - coping with bipolar PLUS!
