Having Bipolar Disorder isn't easy...but as much as individuals with the illness suffer, often it's the significant others, their spouses and their loved ones, who suffer just as much, if not more.

The purpose of this area is for SO's to discuss and share the issues they face in coping with the illness, and to make friends and support one another.  Our scheduled chats will resume as soon as possible.  Until then, please feel free to join us in the main bipolar chatroom. 

Please read our  Guidelines
