is a mental disorder of mood. Swings from the
depths of depression to the heights of mania are the
hallmarks of this illness. Please join us here to
meet others who have been diagnosed with this illness,
ask questions, answer some, or just make new friends
with true understanding of how you feel. It is
true that no one understands us as much as others who
have walked in our shoes.
Bipolar World now has two
chat rooms open for your pleasure. The support
chat is available 24 hours per day with moderated
chats every evening from 8 pm - 11 pm EST, with
additional hours when operators are available.
As its name suggests, support chat is a room for
discussion of bipolar disorder, and sharing questions,
answers, and especially for sharing the empathy and
support that only one bipolar can feel for another.
Lobby Chat is also available
24 hours per day and will be moderated when operators
are available. Lobby Chat is a place to meet
with bipolar friends (or meet new friends) .... to
chat and discuss your day ..... and is meant to be
enjoyed on a light hearted basis - a meeting place as
it were (a coffee shop for bipolars would be an
excellent description if it were real time)
