I was recently diagnosed with Bipolar Disorder (Axis II) and Borderline Personality Disorder. These diagnoses were a long time coming. I’ve been experiencing hypomanic states, depression, troubled interpersonal relationships for the past 10 years (I’m currently 29). My depression and hypomania have worsened during the past two years and  forced me to seek help. I simply cannot go on living like this. I am currently not on any medications, but am working with a psychiatrist to figure out what’s right for me.

Unfortunately, the stigma of mental illness has prevented me from telling the majority of my close friends and family. I simply don’t want to be that girl with the mental issues. So this blog is my outlet and the documentation of this life-long journey.

Welcome to My Secret Recovery.

    Hi nice to meet you I am Dan. I have Bipolar 1. I can relate to your hypomanic states I had trouble with them the past two years. Once I got a better doctor he made some adjustments that have helped a lot. I am glad you came on here you will find a lot of others who go through the same thing who will be supportive and understanding. Look forward to your posts!
