I assume most of you are the same, but even 20 years on, probably due to my bipolar as well as my head injury, I still react t things so badly.
My bipolar hasn't been a major problem for over 10 years due to the mood stabilizer I take, but the last few months haven't been the best cos I've entered a new phase of my life since moving from Leeds to Oxted & am trying to adjust; especially the last few days.
(If U do have ups & downs btw, ask your doctor about Lamotrogen - it's a mood stabilizer & far better than any anti depressant the doctor's tried me on) .
I won't go into detail but as I think I've mentioned before, my brother, a member of my own family who has seen what I've been through hasn't got a clue, although does think he knows best & I should listen to him.
Luckily once again I have seen the problem and eliminated it (no, I haven't done away with my brother btw ;o). But it has been 3 horrible days.
Do I assume others share this or is this a problem that most of you have yet t come across ???
Just so U know in advance. Everyone's an expert & they all think they know best (well I say everyone, me mum's still compassionate, although this to most is an over protective mum, molly coddling me and at 42 years old I should be back t normal by now, surely ???
Not the way a head injury works unfortunately - if you lose an arm, you can't play tennis anywhere near as well (assuming it's your best arm of course) & 20 years later it still won't be, but at least I now have this site to direct people to, so they can see for themselves.
They'll still think they know best deep down but at least they'll have some idea I suppose.
Anyway good t be back to normal Stace again ;o)
