Hi all. new here and would like to introduce myself, I am NotSoWiseOldOwl. Chose that username due to my long and colourful history over the years. I have a dual diagnosis of EUPD (Borderline personality disorder) & Bipolar 2. I am currently taking part in structured clinical management therapy for the EUPD. I was diagnosed with EUPD back in July 2019 during a hospital admission but back then i was not offered any additional or follow on support, it wasn't until February 2020 that I was speaking with a CPN & informed him. It was my CPN at the time who put me forward for the therapy. My journey initially started out as bipolar affective disorder when diagnosed in 2007 & then became bipolar NOS (Not otherwise specified) due to treatment becoming complex and then this January finally becoming bipolar 2 due to having more destructive depressive episodes than mania's. I have been voluntarily hospitalised 3 times, 2017,2019 & 2020 due to my self destructive and highly impulsive actions, I won't go into detail as I really would like to avoid triggering or giving any ideas to any members who are struggling at the moment. I enjoy getting out for nice long walks and relax by listening to all kinds of music.
