Hi,
I am new to this and have only just got a bit close getting some sort of diagnosis after so long feeling like this. Although it still isn't really clear. They are thinking it is some sort of personality disorder but then talk about depression and bipolar too. I'm really confused. I don't know where to find out about what any of this means? Where would you start?
Thanks.

Thanks - that's a really helpful start. Are there other places to go to apart from the internet though?

Sure you already tried but GP - All the mentle health websites have support line if you want to speak to someone. You can call them for advice - they are good at pointing you in right direction.

http://www.mind.org.uk/

http://www.rethink.org/

Once you think you have an idea for a given disorder then look at charities for that specific disorder for more info. e.g. Bi polar and see if they have bipolar chairty with a bi polar only support line. They may be a bit more specialised in each particulr disorder and many who work the support line are suffers.

Just google name of disorder + charity + UK. should find plenty

Thank you. I'll check out those websites so I feel a bit more prepared for my next appointment.

You could try your local library? If it is half decent there should be lots of books on mental health. I would look for the most recent ones though. I think that in the technological age books get forgotten:(
