In 2020 I was diagnosed with both Fibromyalgia and Bipolar, I feel left in the dark about both conditions by my doctors (even though there I know there is no known cure for fibro) I've asked for therapy but the organisation seemed reluctant as I stopped m taking my medication because it was making me fat. It's very hard to work out with Fibro. If I'm honest I feel much better, mentally with out the medication but I'm still desperate to reach out to others with similar conditions. There doesn't appear to be any local groups that I could talk to so I feel very isolated and alone.

Hi, I have Bipolar. I don't blame you for quitting meds 'cos of weight. I was doing ok weight wise on Lithium, but have gained some when put on an extra tablet.I am going to ask for the dose to be reduced.
