Hi everyone, this is my first post...and my first venture into getting in touch with other BP sufferers.
I was only recently diagnosed with BP, after being treated as a depressive for many years. I'm still working, doing the everyday stuff, but it gets harder and harder, which is why I went back to my GP and asked for help. My husband is very supportive, but I feel like I am a burden on him sometimes, I seem to take the lion's share of the relationship, if you know what I mean..
I haven't started taking any medication yet, and quite frankly the thought of it scares the hell out of me, caught between a rock and a hard place..take the meds wait for the side effects..or don't take them and lose my mind completey.
Well, not wanting to ramble to much, I just wanted to say, it's so nice to find a place where people understand, and care. You really have given me hope that things will be ok....thank you x
