Checking In

It's been almost a year since the last update, but things have been fairly quiet.

Kyle has just gotten a job, and we're very proud of him. He's working for a major retailer, seasonal help, but he's hoping they'll keep him on after the holidays. He passed his drug test and his background test, and that made him feel good. That made Karen and I feel good, also. He says he's not drinking or using drugs, and I believe him.

His girlfriend moved with some friends to a house in a suburb about 20 minutes away. Kyle's job is close to her house. He doesn't come home much these days, I'm not sure if that's good or bad, but he's spending most of his time at her house.

He's still having issues with the aftermath of his attack a year and a half ago. He's consulted a few attorneys about it, but they won't take the case. He's still filled with rage, as the kid who attacked him is bragging that Kyle can't touch him. I can't imagine carrying around that hate and rage.

Kyle is still not taking meds, it's the same catch-22. He can't get the meds without insurance, and he can't be stable enough to hold the job that provides insurance without the meds. This brings up a question for everyone. I found a web site that sells meds dirt cheap, no prescription needed. Here's a link to the generic Lamictal:
It's located in a place called Oceania. Has anyone had any experience with this organization, or similar on-line drug suppliers? Leave a comment if you have any experience.

Thanks to all for your emails and continued support. We are still here, just not staying in touch as often.

Hi Jon,
I'm glad to read that Kyle's doing well. Have you checked PPA? I think it stands for Partnership for Prescription Assistance.

It sounds like Kyle may be settling down, which would be absolutely wonderful!
I've been wondering about him & glad to see you updated. :)
Thanks, Jane. I haven't checked PPA, we need to get him to a doc for a prescription first..
I discovered your site while looking for information on support groups for people with bipolar. I was amazed at the raw visuals that you have painted with your words and unobstructed view that you provided into your lives. My girlfriend is bipolar. The more I learn about bipolar, I realize just how disabling it is. Thank you for sharing.
