Nightspeed1 Posted October 8, 2010 Share Posted October 8, 2010 So anyway, my name is William, nice to meet you folks. I have been diagnosed with 296.64 in the DSM-IV. Fun huh? You know, my kids aside, I really feel that having Bipolar is the most wonderful and the most terrible thing that ever could and has happened to me. It is great to finally have an answer. When I met my wife (ex thanks to bp), all I could tell her was that I had "problems". When she asked what I meant, I was for the most part unable to give an accurate description. With all the craziness that accompanies the ups and downs, it was so hard for me to explain why I acted the way I did at any given time. While I have sought help as far as taking meds and stuff (totally anti-ect), maybe the most helpful and liberating thing was a diagnosis. After the diagnosis, I was like holy crap, no wonder (everything that has happened for so many years were explained). But the nice thing was, while on the roller coaster ride, was taking off the blindfold and see where I am going. So at this point, I am trying to decide what steps to take and where I fit in in the world that is bipolar. Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
