Hi all, each time I go through an episode I think I learn something new and explore new ways with which to recognise my own patterns, identify triggers and manage myself if the worst does happen. This time I am finding myself curious as to wether a regular visit to a support group may help me to stay stable. I already understand the importance of sleep, meds and nutrition. I now understand the role my tendancy towards substance abuse (alcohol, caffeine, recreational drugs etc) plays in my mental health and I'm beginning to think that frequent discussion with other people of the same dilema's could possibly help me further my management of my bipolar. What do you guys think about support groups? What are your experiences of them? Do you attend group now or in the past? If you tried and it wasn't for you what were your reasons? Has attending group helped anybody here? I'm just curious so please share with me. Hope your all well and happy today, your friend and peer, Chris
