Disorder 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
peer to peer 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 the empathy and
support that only one bipolar can feel for another.
Your chat nick must be registered in order to enter
this room. For help in registering see the
"commands" section on the
page and you may use the lounge to register it.
Lounge Chat is also available
24 hours per day and will be moderated when operators
are available. Lounge 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)
For java chat rooms click on
the appropriate logos below. If using mIRC or another
internet relay program log into irc.webmaster.com
and join the channel #bipolarworld for support chat
and channel #bplounge for the Lounge.
Anyone interested in
volunteering as a chat operator please contact both Allie
and David (Blackdog)
here . Be sure and include your chat
nick in your email, thanks!
There are rules as in any
chat room but the cardinal one is to treat others as
you would like to be treated. Please read the
rest of the
chat guidelines here. We request anyone who is under
to use the message board for your age group instead of
using the Bipolar Chat Room until we are able to get
scheduled chats set up for you.
Please remember, we are
volunteers only and not medical professionals.
With that in mind, click on the logo of your choice
below to join a chat room.
