It is tricky, I have been thinking about posting this for a while now, but have struggled to muster up the courage, possibly due to a lack of social engagement for the last few months, mainly due to fear.

But, I feel I should force myself, so here is an introduction:

I had a good life up until everything went wrong, although sadly that was so long ago I can't really remember who I really was, hence I have marked my life as being before everything happened, and hence after.

All I remember about my former self, was the arrogance, naivety and (to be frank) god damn stupidity I once contained. However, that is not how my friends (most of whom are former now) and family view it. They see it much more as I have downgraded, I am not who I once was, I have become, in effect a failure.

To cut the story short, I ended up with a psychiatrist, and then a different one, now on my third. And now, just to top things off, I have just been diagnosed as bipolar, I mean, (I think) I was possibly the last person to expect it....

So there you have it, I have joined this place to be able to confide in people, as, let's face it, I won't really be able to do that to anyone other than my CPN and psychiatrist. And to come to terms with my recent diagnosis.

I have heard you are all a friendly bunch....

Welcome to the forums. :)
Don't be nervous about posting. Nobody's here to judge - we're all here because we know what it's like to struggle with mental health.
