hi twylight.

yes i saw the programme! I found it quite comforting to know that the use of alcohol and cocaine to self medicate is wider spread than just me myself and i! I am now clean tho, and have been since my last bout of episodes ended 4 years ago. I was triggered at the beginning of the year again and diagnosed and managed to only get drunk a couple of times- my last time ending in hospitalisation tho and being a mother now i would not be doing that again in a hurry alcohol+meds=disaster!!

It was a great film.

Like i, Fry self medicated with coke to bring him down (rather to bring him up like most people)
