Kia ora. You’re here right now for the same reason I started this site, to learn more about Bipolar disorder. This site will document my constant battle with Bipolar, its affect on my life and how I am now starting to get things back on track.
That’s correct! I have Bipolar 1 (Also suffer with BPD). I have had it since I was a young teenager, however, I was only diagnosed with it in my mid thirties. This diagnosis helped me understand why things had been happening the way they did in my life, it in a basic way helped me come to terms with who I am as a person and acknowledge that I think differently, and that is OK.
In reality I am 36 years old (in 2019). I am a bloke, have three wonderful kids. I have shared custody of my kids with my ex-partners.
I currently live in the North Island of New Zealand, however, I am actually from the United Kingdom. I lived in Liverpool (UK) until I was 25, emigrating at 25 to the tranquil New Zealand. As of 2019 I have been here for eleven years.
So buckle up, read some posts, hopefully they help. If not then move on, if they do then please say hello.
My thoughts are often jumbled up, due to my ever frantic brain.
