I am new here and just wanted to say hi. I was diagnosed with Bipolar 21 years ago. It has been a long road and for the last 6 years I was very stable. I was also diagnosed with boarderline personality disorder (currently in remission) 20 years ago. I also have binge eating disorder (diagnosed 6 months ago). I was a happy crazy person with a well ordered life. However I have eaten myself to nearly 400 pounds. Recently I have had to address the binge eating and quit smoking cigarettes. I am working towards weight loss surgery. The last few months have been an emotional roller coaster without being able to eat my emotions. I have had to be on a strict diet and new medications for the binge eating. This is connected to my emotions, so as a result my bipolar is starting the up and down again. I quit smoking two weeks ago and I am determined to never smoke again. I have been dealing with a lot of anxiety with that. The patches help with the cigarette cravings, but the anxiety is through the roof some days. I have to learn to live with a new norm. I am trying so hard to get everything under control.
