    The NHS denied me the truth for 15 years.

    For 15 years I have repeatedly questions why anyone thinks I have bi-polar and for 15 years the NHS has just blow smoke in my face. Just got in writing this was all a mistake !

    Do you realy have Bi Polar ?

    I was diagnosed with PTSD and Bi-polar and put on lithium around 16 years ago. I’ve often pointing out I don’t have any Bi-polar symptoms other than depression.

    I've been triggered and now I can't sleep. My mind is going in a million different places. I can't live like this anymore. Hopefully Sue will be able to give me something about these flashbacks.

    Sue is frustrated with me

    Yep she's now frustrated with me. She flat out said she was frustrated... I'm very upset. I told her I wanted to overdose. She said if I'm not safe I need to go to the hospital. I told her no I can't do that. If she truly knew what I'm thinking she would put me in the hospital. Edit: she's...

    I need to have a grumpy rant. (Ex issues.)

    I just need to get this out of my system and since it's 2.30am there is no one to rant to :( I broke up with my ex (we can name him Clive) in October.
