Re: New Here
It's really tough when you're first diagnosed, especially when you have a family to look after. But you've made the first (and hardest step) - you recognised something wasn't right and got yourself some help. You're also aware of things that your mum could have done (and didn't), and that makes you a much better parent, because you won't do the same thing to your kids.
It does get easier, and these boards are really friendly, so there's always someone to talk to. Keep posting and give yourself time to start feeling better. Try not to be too hard on yourself.
