Hi my name is Colin, a 32 year old male. I just want to say hello. I am new to this so please forgive the babbling.
five months ago i was diagnosed with Bipolar dissorder and have now been told by my new psychiatrist that it may well be Borderline personality disorder.
To be honest the last year has been a bit of a roller coaster ride.

Right enough babbling.
My interests are cross country mountain biking and walking any where and every where, oh, and music also rocks my boat. i like to be open, but on a bad day the world can go to hell in a shopping basket.

hi Colin

Hi Colin,
Welcome.

I like the way you describe where the world can go on a bad day- hell in a shopping basket!
Put an amusing image in my mind- thanks, Im going to try to remember that next time Im down, I think it'll make me smile again!

Enjoy the forum, and I hope it helps.
Louise.

Hi Dollit. Good to be on board. Not really having a good day. Do you ever have days where everything seems to be going in slow motion.
Maybe its just the meds. :confused:

I know those days well - the perfect opposite when you speed so fast you leave the world behind. This is what I do. Just take the day as it is. Sit and watch tv or a magazine - let the day go and do what it wants. Sometimes it's a good excuse to opt out for a day or so. :hug:

I agree, i have oftem lost track of what day it is. Since i became depressed my short term memory has started to suffer, i often forget peoples names which can be embarrasing :oops: :D

I never know the day or the day and hardly ever know what time it is. Makes life interesting! :D

I once heard a quote in a song that rings true, "do you ever have that feeling where your not sure if your awake or still dreaming". Not sure if its good or bad when three days fly by with out you even noticing :LOL:
