hi everyone, my name is Kelly, i'm 25 and living and working in Brighton right now.

i'd had depression since i was 19 after leaving a violent and abusive relationship. Depression would come and go but to cut a long story short, a couple of days ago i was finally diagnosed with bipolar. Have been put on some mood stabilizers etc but i'm just a littlebit confused with everything.

racing thoughts aside, i'm just trying to get my head around the fact that i've got a life long condition. i'm worried about a few things like how other people will react to me, including the ones i have told about my mentalness, and also how i will cope at work.

i'm gonna have a pootle around the forum right now,but hope to talk to some of you soon

take care

kelly x

Hi Kelly and :welcome: to the Forum. It certainly is a lot to get your head around and I am not sure that I ever have completely!

Nick.

:welcome: Kelly.

I hope this place is as helpful to you as it is for me.

I've not had an official diagnosis as yet so carn't fully relate although i been bonkers for quite some time now :LOL:(y)

But as far as how will people react?
