I'm Here And I'm Truly Mad

Recommended Posts

48 years old. Life has little meaning. Melted down in 2003 and haven't got much better since.

PDOCs hand out this pill and that pill, this diagnosis and that diagnosis. Your Bipolar my dear. However, severe PTSD can look just like Bipolar.

So I work on the PTSD. Sometimes its like a trip to h*ll.

I am tired of this. I do what they say, and I still have major problems.

The only good thing is I've kept my job.

I have two cats Buddy and Pushkin. I lost my beloved Sophie at 18 years of age just a few months ago she slept by my pillow every night of her life except for her last.

Life pretty well sucks. Oh, and it won't stop raining here in Texas where I live.

Glad to find a forum such as this. I've learned a lot since I've been here.

Things that I do that I thought no on else in the world did - that sort of thing.

Hello, TexasKitty

Welcome to AS. :hug: I had been diagnosed with bipolar, but it has been determined that it is PTSD. I'm sure you will find many similarities here at AS.

You're definitely not alone here, and it is such a frustrating experience. Diagnosing things that are mental/emotional are sometimes complicated, but ever-so frustrating for the patients.

I hope that you find peace, knowledge, coping mechanisms, healing and support here. I've found so much of that and more here in just a few weeks. Welcome aboard!

Thank you to all for your wonderful welcome. Unusual for so many people to respond to a hello post. Seems to be a very supportive community, although I think maybe I'm positively geriatic here at 48 years. :)

Thanks again.
