Thank you for starting this thread @Askmeanything8202.

Has bipolar always been part of your life in some way, or was there a particular event or series of events which triggered your illness?

Was it apparent in childhood. Do you have any co morbid conditions e.g ADHD ?

Have you found it hard to make friends? I've recently been diagnosed after avoiding doctors for many years. I was diagnosed with ocd in my early teens (25 years ago) but didn't bother seeking help since until a couple of years ago. My problem seems to be that when I'm at a low point I don't keep in touch with people, don't answer calls or texts and don't go online (I don't have accounts on any social media anyway). People that I've been friendly with in the past have drifted away because I can't seem to stay in touch. I haven't spoken to any of my family for many years. Have you had similar issues or do you have any advice? It gets lonely sometimes
