Hello all, after 17 yrs of symptoms and doing nothing about (the world was broken, not me), I lost the love of my life, and finally it hit me, I may have a problem or two.

I was diagnosed recently and just started Lithium, Therapy and Psychiatric Doc (meds). I'm sad, nervous, scared, excited, hopeful and depressed all rolled up in one. Thankful to finally put a name on what the hell is wrong with me, but terrified I'll never find someone like I lost, and if I do, I'll just make the same mistakes again.

I'm here to find support and give some if I can, I can't tell you how weird it is reading these posts and Identifying with so much.

I can relate to you in the fact of loosing someone that you love because you got treatment after it was to late. Don't feel alone I am sure that many of us have went through this at one time or another. It is scary to find out that there is something wrong with you when you have vested so much time trying to heal your self or thinking it is not you it is the world around you that has a problem. It took me 8 years to finaly accept that I needed help and when I was dx with bipolar I didn't want to believe it! After starting my meds and seeing positive changes it made me relize that I wish I would not have put this off for so long. I am not all better I have problems still and have to start all over again but there is hope and you are not alone. Keep writing I just recently found this forum and it helps me alot. Take care and will be keeping you in my thoughts.

Thank you so much, hearing that really helps a lot. I don't know why the feeling of being alone in all this is so over powering.
