I'm a computer scientist from Melbourne, Australia. I suffer from a serious case of BP. Technically, I am BP Type 1 as I have had one serious manic episode but if we didn't count that single incident, I would be Type 2 with mostly clinical depression. Tend to have a serious breakdown once every decade that destroys my life and then I find ways to build a better one.
Just went through one of those and I would like to start my new life focusing on taking better measures to reduce the impact of those episodes or to try to avoid them completely. I would love to find a generic type solution that helps others in my situation as well. I have all the skills we would ever need on the tech side but find it hard to stay motivated and develop ideas further without discussions with similar people and people showing some interest in whatever we try to make.
