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.

Hello and welcome. I hope you can find the support you are looking for here. Sounds like you have had some hard ongoing battles. Maybe with this additional diagnosis they can hopefully reduce some of the severity of the mood shifts? Take care.
