Re: Depression, Bipolar and Other Personality Issues.

Thanks for that Sally <:)> I must admit i do feel proud for managing to use the phone and averting anything worse. I would not have drank but i was feeling highly distressed and in self destruct mode. Learning to manage mental health problems over the years has been very similar to managing alcoholi...

Re: Depression, Bipolar and Other Personality Issues.

I love that asking for help picture too. Infact it was very relevant to me on Friday as i had an emotional/angry day visiting family. Something happened and i reacted badly and extremely, resulting in me storming off in the rain and needing to phone crisis team to calm down. Thankfully it helped. Da...
