We had a dozen people at this meeting.  The following topics were discussed:

  • How we feel about potentially passing on our illness to our children
  • The Happiness Curve, by Jonathan Ranch
  • What has happened to you at home when you’re manic and your spouse make you aware of it?
  • Do you ever experience loneliness?
  • Can you think of a positive outcome directly related to your mood disorder?
  • What are people’s strategies when faced with difficult decisions with no clearly “great” outcomes?
