    I seriously want this but in the hospital they wouldn't give it to me. I suffer with headaches,a numbness,which can only be relieved by smoking and drinking. So what should and can I do...? Keep smoking and drinking or ask for ECT again?

    Guilt over breakup

    What would you think if your therapist started crying in one of your sessions? Confused, alarmed or relieved that you thought someone really understood and could feel some of the pain even though you wouldn't want them to.

    I first posted here a few years ago with a (from memory) "am i bipolar?" type message. ....and the award for most punctuation used within 7 words goes to..... Anyway, today i was diagnosed with Bipolar 2. Does it make sense to say that I am relieved that i'm not going mad? I haven't imagined it...
