How to even start introducing myself...Well I'm a 26 yr old single female who is currently unemployed and living back at home with my parents because I just can't seem to cope with the world on my own. I've suffered from bipolar disorder for many years but it was misdiagnosed as strictly depression until about a year ago. In addition to the bipolar I do have severe depression issues, as well as social anxiety disorder, insomnia, PTSD and panic attacks, and on top of all of that I am also trying to learn how to cope with some very traumatic events from my past. Although I am very fortunate to have a great therapist and a good psychiatrist as well as a slew of other support in my life, I'm finding it really difficult to find anyone who truly understands and can relate to what I'm going through on the day to day. My friends and family all love me and want the best for me, but they get very frustrated at times because they just don't understand why I "can't" do a lot of things that they want, need or expect from me. I'm tired of feeling so alone all the time so my therapist suggested that I look for a community like this one to help me realize that I'm not all alone in this mess I call my life...
Well I guess that's me in a nutshell...or nuttyshell as the case may be I'm just here looking for a little support and hopefully I'll be able to contribute in a positive manner as well.
