I've been reading this forum for the last week or so and decided to take the plunge. I'm bipolar and was first diagnosed 20 years ago. I've been an in patient on two occasions many years ago which was fun! I've had a real rollercoaster ride with my local mental health authority over the years having had care and treatment from both ends of the spectrum. I sometimes feel that I've learnt as much as I want to learn about being bi-polar, it's more the baggage you collect along the way I would like to deal with. I accept that it's a condition for life, I would just like to turn the clock back a few years and have another go with the knowledge I have now. I hope that makes sense.
