Greetings, all. New here, 4+ years into the diagnosis. My official diagnosis is Bipolar with Complex PTSD with history of suicides. Since my diagnosis, I have lost two grandmothers and my mother. My mother lost a hard four year battle with breast cancer, so go Pink! I am currently navigating the disability maze and am trying to get on state care as we were unable to continue our Cobra payments.
My intro reads like a sob story, but after 3 suicides, there's a reason I'm still here. Probably my two kiddos, who my friends basically took away from me. That's a long story that I haven't even gotten into in my journal. I have a great sense of humor, which has gotten me thus far.
I have yet to find meds that work, but am currently on lithium and keppra. I don't like either of them and am so tired of the medicine game.
While here, I hope to learn through some of you that have gotten something working and feel like something other than a pariah.
Thanks for listening.
