One Door Closes...

So it's a bit of a personal post today. I have being going through CBT for a very long time now and today at 1pm I have my 16th and final session.
In all honesty, I went in to this expecting it not to work and I was right.
Although I have learned a lot about having compassion towards yourself and that it's okay to need a break sometimes, It hasn't been as successful as I had hoped.
I know that the therapy would be really successful for other people because the techniques and things really do help but unfortunately I have other things going on in this brain of mine.

It was only recently that I discovered that my paternal aunt has been diagnosed with Bipolar disorder.

When I had a little read up of this disorder I could completely relate to every little symptom.
My behaviour and life has been scarily similar.
When I spoke to my mum about it she knew straight away that there's a strong possibility.
So it's now that I am almost certain that this is what I have.
That word is big and scary to me.
I can't even comprehend how many changes there are coming my way next year and how many hurdles there's going to be.

Has anyone been officially diagnosed with bipolar?
I would love to have someone tell me about their story to see if I can relate.
Thanks in advance.

Thanks for reading
Loubee Lou
