Hey everyone, I was pointed to this forum by a friend of mine, and was told great things about it. I hope you're all well, and here's a little bit about myself...

I'm 22 years old, I sing, play piano and guitar, adore anything with 4 legs (I own 3 rats and 2 cavies) and I attempt to draw every now and again.

I was diagnosed with Bipolar type 2 at 17, then BPD at 19 (was anyone else aware that a community nurse can make a diagnosis?), then back to Bipolar 2 at 21. I also suffer from body dysmorphia and GAD which means I don't really leave the house much...well can't. Currently on Lithium after having a horrific time with meds over the past 3 years, and I'm pretty hopeful about it working.

I guess the main reason I'm here is that I don't have many friends IRL to relate to about my problems and situation, and the support I'm getting from my mental health team is far from doing anything to really help. I just want to feel like I belong somewhere, and have people there who actually know and get what I'm going through.

Anyway, that's enough from me. Hope you're all well, enjoy your day xx
