Newly Diagnosed?

Hello, and welcome to the family!

Please, don’t be afraid to ask any questions. The mental health blogging community is a great place to find information on a huge number of topics, everyone I’ve encountered has been more than forthcoming about their own beliefs and experiences.

It is possible that you’re upset about the potential diagnosis you’ve been given, or you may believe it is false, or it may not come as a surprise and may seem to explain everything! Those are all very common responses, and I would say that the most important thing you can do is learn more, whether you agree with the diagnosis or not.

I’m hoping the information I’ve put here is helpful, as it is my intention to address some of the initial questions one might have after being diagnosed without wading through the entire blog (though, if you want to read it, by all means please do). If there is something else you’re curious about, feel free to leave a comment or drop me a line!

  • There are a number of things we can do externally to help keep things on more of an even keel, you can find more on that in the External Variables portion of the blog.

Thanks for visiting!

  1. I was diagnosed with rapid cycling bipolar disorder earlier this year. I appreciate what you’re doing and I’m so glad I discovered your blog!

    • Sarah @ bi[polar] curious

      Thanks for the kind words, and for stopping by! If nothing else, know that you are definitely not alone -you can always look to the bipolar community for support.

      Take care!

  2. I’m kinda overwhelmed that I found your blog. Thank you!

  3. So I printed some of this stuff out along with a “goal list” I had made of 11 goals to my new counselor today. Whoa! did it go better!

  4. Just wanted to tell you I used a lot of the suggestions from this blog earlier this month when I had to go to the ER for a pysch hold. This was by far the most stress-free hospital stay ever!

    • Oh no, I’m sorry to hear you had to go to the ER but I’m glad you found some tips to make things a little more painless! Hope you’re feeling better and thanks for stopping by!
