I am new here, but I have been BP 1 since 1989. I didn't have the correct dx until almost 10 years later, and had never been med compliant or stable until 2003. Before then I was hospitalized several times and had many beaks from reality. I now deal with depression and anxiety, sometimes serious, but I want more than anything to never have to be hospitalized again (who wouldn't). But I take no risks or chances, and stay in my comfort zone, and wonder is this better than risking a crisis? Also, I am very overwhelmed by everything on the site. Just reading things, the time is flying by.
