did you get a complete diagnosis?
being diagnosed with bipolar disorder was the most relieving and horrible thing that has ever happened to me. relieving because when we went back through my life it could explain almost every single high and low since my early teens (with corresponding triggers, which i had never recognised). horrible because since, my life has been one long string of doctors, therapists, nurses, medication, therapy, blah blah blah. it’s been a battle to get the right treatment. and along with that, i do the slightest thing that’s out of character and everyone thinks i’m getting manic. oh, and the pretty much constant depression and anxiety sucks.
i don’t particularly want to post publicly about my last manic episode right now, but i lost a lot of friends, am pretty much estranged from my family, and ended up with me moving city and country.
if anyone is struggling with bipolar please feel free to message me. i am struggling too, and could do with a (bipolar) friend.
