    How is everyone?

    I'm just wondering how everyone on the forum is doing these days, because it's been super quiet on here!

    I'm still here. I have to admit I've been struggling lately. These Covid restrictions, while necessary, are dreary. Thankfully here I can still go for walks, and I'm managing to go on a few hikes. I am sure I'm not alone with my Covid fatigue.

    I'm also having some health challenges on more than one front. I think I'll feel better when it all gets sorted out. I am fortune to have a family doctor who tirelessly advocates for me. I wouldn't be able to see these specialists without her doing that. Now if I could just have an in person appt. with my psychiatrist.

    Family stuff can also be challenging and I seem to be struggling with a lot of emotions about that. Ugh.

    On a positive note, Bella & I went on a walk in the wind and rain, yuck, but we saw an amazing rainbow!

            Hello everyone. I'm new here. I am hoping to be able to contribute and in return learn from you all and support you where I can. I am struggling currently with bipolar depression. I came down/off a mixed episode a couple months ago. I just had my second ECT treatment this morning. I have been through ECT before. I work in the disability claims industry and I have been in the closet so to speak for 20+ years with my problems just trying to survive like everyone else. But, it cost me everything in my life because I was scared to get treatment and ask for help because of stigma. I would like to see this improved.

              Hi Goalieknees and welcome to the forum. The stigma is sadly alive and well, even among some health care workers. I take solace in knowing that even though I can't change the world, I can educate those who are open to it. It does get weary at times, and it is especially hard if you are in the work force.
