Thank you. I've been dealing with bipolar IIand manic/depression for years. I became worse after losing my husband to brain cancer. I thought I could handle it w/o my meds, EEEE, wrong choice. I racked up almost 20K in debt.
It's authors like you that I admire so much.
When I read a warning for any story, I plow through them. It's like therapy for me. Facing my demons.
I hope you are doing ok? It's always difficult living day-to-day with any chronic illness, trust me, I have several. I truly appreciate your kind words, they mean so much to me, & make writing this story worth the emotional journey it took me on. Take care of yourself, and thanks so much for reading and reviewing.

Is he glad that he survived?
Thanks for the reviews. He is glad that he survived. He actually acted of depression, and guilt that day. He never thought fully of the consequences, but just that he was in so much mental and emotional pain, and wanted it to stop. They both didn't communicate effectively in their marriage, unfortunately, but they are going to therapy separately and together, so hey can have a strong- healthy relationship. My goal for this story was to bring awareness to the struggles of what people go through with bipolar disorder. Even people with depression suffer similar fates. I hope I've helped shed a light on this disease, and at the same time, removed some of the stigma.

Thank you for sharing this story and opening up about your own feelings. I don’t have Bilolar Disorder, but I do have Chronic Depression and ADD. I have also gone off my meds thinking I didn’t need them anymore and by the 2nd week was functioning only as much as I had to for Work and my kids. And with the ADD, I have been fussed at and then made fun of for my lack of organizational skills, procrastination, and punctuality. I finally started turning it around and asking how everyone thinks I feel on this side of it and how I want it to be different. Unfortunately I’ve passed on the ADD/ADHD on to 4 of my 5 children and they’ve all have had bouts of depression and a couple have been diagnosed with bipolar disorder and we’ve had to deal with an overdose and a suicide attempt. Thank you again so much for sharing your story. It helped me to see things differently with regards to them and for that I can’t thank you enough!
I'm so glad this story has helped others, it truly warms my heart to hear others stories of how this fic has helped open their eyes to the disease. I thank you for sharing your story with me. I'm not sure who you are on Facebook, but you're welcome to give me a holler anytime you need to talk. I know what it's like to have depression, have kids with depression, it can be overwhelming. Thanks so much for reading and for reviewing.

Thank you for this story. It seems wrong to say I love it, given the topic. But, I do.
If it's wrong, I don't want you to be right. ;) Seriously, thank you so much for reading it & for the review. I'm honored you're loving it.

Uh oh! I’m glad to see Bella take control of the situation. I’m anxious to see how this talk will go. Looking forward to the next chapter.
Thanks so much for reading, & thank you for taking the time to review. I truly appreciate it.

How heartbreaking it must be to feel like that. Two of my daughters are bipolar but they’ve never told me how they feel other than the feeling good and then being depressed. I hope Bella and Carlisle find Edward quickly.
Hopefully this will give you a little bit of insight into the mind of a bipolar person. Thanks for reading.
