About this meeting
Thankful Thursday gives that weekly boost to be with others that understand the challenges that exist with bipolar disorder. Spend an hour with a limited number of people in a safe and confidential space. This group meets again on Sunday mornings for Sunday Sunrise Bipolar Support at 9 am EST. Be sure to register for both, they give fill up quick.

About the host
Struggling? I’ve been there! I am Lori and have lived with Bi-Polar II, anxiety and panic attacks, depression and PTSD from trauma and toxic relationships most of my adult life. I also have members of my inner circle that also live with various life challenges. I live on both sides of the mental health journey. I received my certification from UNC-Chapel Hill in Peer Support in 2014. However, I have been listening to others and sharing my own experiences most of my life. I have rebuilt my life several times and explored the question of “who am I” and “why am and I here” multiple times through life. I try to live by the motto of "Living Life Forward"
Motivation for help
I am a certified HeyPeers facilitator and Peer Support saved my life. I have been successful in the recovery process and want to help others experiencing similar situations through understanding, respect, and empowerment. I offer one on one coaching and support. Contact me directly to schedule one on one sessions.

Melanie was great

In Lori's group, the subject of isolation was raised — true isolation, in which people live alone, have no family or friends, little to no human contact, no one to call or text during difficult times, limited transportation and therefore limited means of engaging in activities outside the home, or suffer from anxiety and/or panic that keeps them at home. It was suggested that DBSA create a meeting space specifically for individuals dealing with isolation and its detrimental effects on mental health. This is a widespread problem and needs to be addressed.
