Belated Hello

Recommended Posts

I've been on here a couple of weeks, but I am just getting to saying hello...!


I guess I just wanted to settle in a bit first and be sure I was here to stay before I introduced myself.


I like this forum a lot. It's really helped distract me recently, and I needed that. It's fun and friendly too. :)



So, my name is Zoe, I'm 34, and I just moved to Nebraska from the UK 3 weeks-ish ago. I am a newly wed and very happy with my hubby. I am a step-mom but not a mom yet.


I was dx bipolar in 2013, after nearly 20 years of of dx of recurrent depression and strange behavior that was put down to a personality disorder. I get psychotic symptoms sometimes, and I have fairly bad anxiety and intrusive thoughts. My highs are more mixed that euphoric unfortunately. I used to cycle in big cycles - now they are getting shorter and more often.


Lithium works well for me, though my new pdoc is planning to see if they can find a better drug for me. We shall see.


I am a big reader, I love to learn and study, I love pets and all animals. I find it hard to socialize with large groups, but I love hanging out with nice people in groups of 2 or 3. I do enjoy company when it feels safe. I love movies but I don't even own a TV. I like some TV shows on Netflix etc though. I have a lot of tattoos. I like to think I'm pretty friendly and a smiley person, though I feel very anxious inside a lot of the time!


Anyway, hello all. It has been great to be made to feel so welcome so far.
