I realized today that although I’ve been diagnosed major depressive with anxiety over the years, it wasn’t until I had my hysterectomy 2 years ago that most likely triggered my bipolar and BPD, both of which I’ve probably has for a long time.
So I put this question out to the blogisfere…. When you were diagnosed was it as a result of a major event in your life.
Did you have troubles sleeping? I know I’ve had a lot of problems. Stress, has been a problem, but for me I’ve been learning tools and coping skills that do help, but it does take practice.
What about family and friends? Do they understand what it is you live with? How many walked away because it was scary and more then they wanted to have in their life?
How many of you see a psychiatrist? How do you feel about him/her? I actually like mine, although in the beginning I want sure if I would lol.
