Thanks for posting a link to the Lost and Found article on this forum. It should be required reading for all relatives and friends of anyone with a BI. There is so much which is so true in this piece and I was nodding at all the comments. We all know that our behaviour has changed but we are assuredly, definitely not mad, as someone cruelly said to me soon after I came out of hospital.
The NHS were amazing BUT we need much better understanding of BI and ongoing aftercare, as issues dont just stop when you leave hospital. That was actually when mine started and I left my wonderful nurses and was flung back into loud hectic full-on life and expected to be smiley and slot back into the old roles. Utterly impossible and I have never been more knackered ( shudders at memory) Happy weekend, all. I am starting a new job on Monday (Yesssss!) so will do as little as possible for 48 hours x
