It's difficult because apart from my rapid cycling Bi polar 1 I am in the early stages of early onset of dementia. I can't believe it is nearly six years since my...

Re: bipolar assessment

Hi Vix, I have bipolar. When I was diagnosed with this - it sort of added meaning to my life. The diagnosis explained some of the contrasting symptoms I experienve ie highs and lows. Hitherto people just thought I was a bit of an extrovert or irresponsible when really I was, or am, ill. I don't know...

Re: Hallucinations are starting again

Hi Lucretia,

Thanks for your reply - i phoned the helpline in the end - they were very helpful. I see by your profile that you are interested in history. I read History as a mature student at Uni.

Best wishes

Re: hi im a new member

Hi Cassy, Welcome to the site - the first posts the hardest I think. I have bipolar. It is a difficult illness to cope with at first especially - but in time you begin to recognize what could be triggers to a high or low. It is important that I take my medication regular and put in place some safe g...

Re: Emotion and hurt trig

Hi Katie

I know how you feel - but please hang on in there. You and belle were the ones who first replied to my post when I needed someone to respond badly. I want you to know that I am thinking about you and hope and pray you keep safe.

Please take care,

Re: Really struggling

Hi Belle, Thanks for your post. Things are still a bit dire with me - but am getting a little sleep. The crisis team are visisting me still and say it is still early days on these meds. I have been so wrapped up with me lately I have never asked how you are doing - sorry about that. Take Care, Foggy
