One year therapy anniversary!! *Trumpets, horns and parade music tittididii!*

I sat down and my therapist started off by asking how am I feeling, she was smiling, the she continued along the lines of what I had answered that my whole presence is different compared to what it was a year ago. She really seemed pleased. :)

Later, she never really refers to any diagnosis, but she thought that me having my thoughts more gathered was related to bipolar. So I was hypomanic when I didn't have them gathered, and it was all in line with how she had previously interpret me during our sessions.

Anyway, I've been on meds for over two years now, and it's just starting to straighten out. So it really takes A LOT of time, effort, consistency, work and being committed. I don't think I've ever once missed a session.

Yippee!!! Hooray!!! A reason to celebrate! :D

I've also never missed a session either. I like to have someone whom I can trust completely with anything...but especially my mood issues. Because all my 3D friends don't even want to talk about bipolar. They don't have it and so they can't actually relate. I'd rather not share. So with the therapist, it's safe to share.

Oh it's not just about me!

I've been dealing with PTSD and BP II and I'm on quetiapine, quetiapine depot and mirtazapin.
I used to be more active on this forum, but I guess I've gone from daily mood diary to specific problematic situations.
Both of them being just as necessary stages towards a balance. :)
