Hello all,
 
 I am F. I am new to this forum,though have read some post in times of great need which have helped me tremendously. Currently 25 years old around 6'5,College educated, soon to be pursueing post-graduate education. Have had A&P since my early teens that I can remember. Family history of various  mental/mood disorders. Diagnosed with Bipolar and IBS November 2009, though problems started earlier in life. ALways had some type of stomach/head problems, they just did not rear their ugly head so to speak, until then. Its  been off and on turmoil ever since. Stress has always been some what of a provblem and I tend to think of the worst and over analyze just about everything.Have had a lot of stressful recent life experiences lately ( bought a house, proposing, wedding planning, mother serious health problems, grandmother serious health problems, not knowing one month or so if going to have a job, on top of working in a very stressful environment, not to mention myself being a hypochondriac on top of high stress already i bring upon myself,etc.) Hoping to stay apart of these forums and draw from the experiences of everyone else who is brave enough to share their stories and life with me to help me find some direction and to make peace with myself and my issues.
 
-F

Hello and welcome to HealingWell. I am Kitt and I have had A & P and Depression for 28 years. I do take medication and I do have a wonderful therapist that helps me put a realistic spin on things I over react to.

I have always been able to work fulltime until I retired and raised four children, went to college after I had my 4 children and have traveled to many places.

I truly understand what stress can do to a person as I have been through many major stress events over these 28 years the most stressful was when our son, who was 21 years old, was killed in a car crash.

The thing I feel helps me the most is accepting that I have mental health issues but not allowing these problems to rule my life. I am in charge of myself.

Kindly,

Kitt
