Welcome, Julie! I hope you like it here... I know the whole having kids debate with meds. It's not like I can afford to have kids right now (both hubby and I on disability), but it's also the med problem. I'm 30... Geo and I said we might talk about it when I get around 32 to see what we might do. I don't know how much would change.... I'm not getting better with my bipolar... I'm actually doing worse than I was last year. I just hope I can turn things around! Anyway, that's probably too much about me. *hugs* I'm here for you!

Hello everybody!! I'm Julie. I'm a thirty four year old married gal living in the Nashville area. I lived in Northern Virginia (just outside D.C.) for over thirty years, and I've been living in the Nashville area for about two and a half years. Other than not having family around, Nashville is great!! I don't have any kids yet, but I would like them some day.

One challenge that I face is being Bipolar. In order to have a safe pregnancy, I need to significantly decrease my meds. That's not something I'm comfortable doing right now. In the mean time, I'm trying to eat healthy and get all the nutrients I need. Then, **hopefully**, my body won't need as much medicine because my brain will be able to function better with those nutrition changes. Of course, there's a chance I won't be able to decrease my meds; and in that case, maybe we will consider adoption. We're just not sure what God has in store for us! (Wow, that just got kinda personal pretty quickly!)

I would be lying if I said I joined SparkPeople for purely health reasons. I want to look amazing too!! I'm hoping to lose 30+ pounds and meet some great people while I'm doing it! I just joined yesterday and already, I've been overwhelmed by how supportive people are on this site! Thanks for being awesome!!! emoticon
