I have been purusing the forum for about a month and noticed this is a european board, like the UK and such. Do you have any other members from the US? I am from Ohio.

I have BP II with rapid cycling, diagnosed just this past July. My therapist (tdoc) said that he agrees with the diagnosis from my psychiatrist (pdoc). I have been under the care of my pdoc since november/december of 2008, so for a while now. He started me out on celexa, then added abilify (which I stopped taking) and then switched to geodon, which I took until september or october of this past year, when I was switched off the celexa and geodon and onto risperidone and pristiq. He added wellbutrin to my mix about a month or so ago.

I am 28 years old.

I was sexually abused as a child and dealt with that poorly up until about 3 years ago. I have learned how to relegate that to my past, where it belongs. Occassionally I will think about it or even let it get to me, but not very often at all.

I started compulsive/obsessive skin picking about the age of 12 or 13. I remember the night as if it were yesterday. I have done this - picking at various imperfections, mostly on my upper body - almost consistantly since then, with a year of not doing it here and there.

I suffered depression through my teen years and up to present day. My life has only been peaceful once in my life, and I was hypomanic at that time, a period of time that lasted about a year.

I have two college degrees (history and philosophy) and am doing nothing with my life. Currently on disability.
