Hi I'm new to the forum so bit nervous and not sure what to say other than im 42 a paramedic and have a diagnosis of bipolar disorder type 1 and personality disorder. As per my job I'm 90% high functioning and have long periods of remission, however had a big one in July last year and still recovering... I would really love to meet others who understand...

More than welcome here.

I don't have either of your conditions, but I do have autism, OCD, depression and anxiety.

Hi moon cat and Julie, thank you for the kind replies, it certainly is a struggle but hopefully one we will all continue to get through. One day at a time and all that!.. I've found a couple of new friends on here, people that really understand and it's really helpful.. Would like to chat some more if you want to.
Take care both and hopefully speak soon
Kind regards
Dan
