    Dear people who had a late mental diagnoses

    A late diagnoses is like a crappy intrusive step father.

    Proper diagnoses?

    Hi guys, I'm in the UK and strongly suspect I have BPD or cyclothymia, not sure which - maybe a combination of both, is that's possible. My problem is that in my area, the mental health services are useless. I have recently been in touch with the only free service in my area for adults (I'm 26)...

    First post on here after years of lurking, hello everyone! So today I'm feeling very frustrated and angry - again I live with my father whom is very unsupportive about my mental illnesses and is adamant in thinking that I make it all up to hurt him. We don't talk in person despite living...

    Don't know if I have BPD or not

    And yes, to begin with, I know that no one here can answer that for me. I just feel like writing a bit about it anyway. The first mental health professional I saw, a psychiatrist, diagnosed me as bipolar but wasn't entirely sure whether to diagnose me as having BPD. We didn't spend much time...

    Have been asked to attend a maintaining adherence programme(MAP)

    I think it's something they ask most people at the depot clinic as the assumption is on depot= bipolar/schizoaffective/schizophrenia diagnosis and the programme is aimed at those groups of patients. There will be an initial assessment but judging from what I read I don't think I'll qualify...
