I am a regular visitor to the Stepchat Bipolar Chat Room (http://stepchat.com/bipolar/room1.htm). When I am not well, it is a great comfort to know that there are others out there struggling with similar issues. When I am well, I get to offer support and experience to others in need. Many times, I have aired my problems to others who have helped me to find solutions. There are very good real-life support groups out there, but the convenience of an online 24/7 group has been indispensable for me.
