1. Yes, finally. I've had the same (part-time) job since November 2014. My employer is great and has been good at accommodating me though.

2. Somehow yes despite the fact that living with me isn't always easy, but thanks to internet dating I did warn him ahead of time. He's stuck with me through a lot and I do think I have a keeper. I've been terrified at times just because I know what I'm like but he's never even made mention of ever leaving.

3. No. With my physical and mental health issues we decided it was best not to. We didn't really want them that much either. We opted for the four footed furry kind of kids. We have two eight year old cats and a four month old puppy (who is actually an emotional support animal).

I'm not working and am in the process of applying for disability. I also have Fibromyalgia and Chronic Migraines, but I know it's going to be difficult to get disability.

I have a boyfriend who puts up with my antics and control issues. Yay OCD!

I have 2 daughters, one of which does not live with us. She has severe Cerebral Palsy and is in a home for disabled children because she requires around the clock care. My almost 14 year old does live at home with me, though, and is also being treated for Bipolar Disorder and ADHD.

No, I don't have a steady job - but due to massive medical bills, I'll most probably have to look for at least a part time position.

Yes, I have a spouse. We haven't been married for even a year at this point. We've had a lot of really bad stressors these last three months....the relationship is very rocky.

No, no kids unless you count the four legged variety, then we have two. I have a step daughter. She's 23 and we have a good friendship.

My body is a fat burning machine!

Hi., emoticon

No,I don't have a steady job I am retired. I live off my social security and my single, working parent daughter and grand son live with me in my apartment. I am divorced with no partner .I have two grown children, Jeni, and Sam. Sam is 34 and has two of my grand sons and Jeni is 32 and has one of my grand sons. I watch Micah for Jeni during the day when she's at work. It's really no big deal, because he is in school most of the time. I love being around my boys and you will hear a lot about them. What about you? Job, spouse, kids?

Yes, I have a steady job. I do struggle with attendance when I'm depressed, but I have an understanding boss. I always make at least 30 hours a week. I have a professional job (a soil scientist), so my hours are more flexible.

I am divorced (my ex and I were married for 13 years). We are on good terms; we work as friends an co-parents but not as partners. I do have a live-in boyfriend now (I just moved to a different town 50 miles away to be with him). We plan to marry some day, but I'm not in a hurry.

I have two kids. A daughter who's 15, and a son who's 13. I wasn't planning on kids, but in a manic episode, oops. They are the best "surprises" that ever happened to me. They both have rolled with the ups and downs of my manic depression.

No, no, and no.

I am on disability, so no job. I haven't been able to hold down a steady job since about 2009. I was with Geo for almost 12 years, and we just broke up. It's a lot of drama, but mostly I'm sick of his anger. I don't have kids, since I don't want to stop my meds. I can't have kids on my meds. Well, that and besides Geo, I'm a lesbian. Geo and I didn't have a physical relationship, just an emotional one. So no, I don't have any of those things, but I am happy! Even at times other than now, because I'm hypomanic right now.
