I am a 45 year old woman.  I have been married for 18 years and have 2 grown children and a grandson.  I was diagnosed with bipolar disorder, PTSD, OCD and anxiety disorder and ADHD about 3 years ago now.  On top of the mental disorder, I have fibromaylgia and myofascial pain disorder.   Arthritis and scoliosis and recently COPD.  I lost a job I loved 4 years ago because I was in a manic episode (as I've come to figure out) and was having an affair and drinking and never going home.  I damaged my marriage, our finances and my girls lives, as well as mine.  I then sank into a deep depression which has been ongoing ever since.  I'm tired of feeling this way and just want to have my normal self back.  I'm angry that I know that will never happen because I don't know who I really was or who I'm suppose to be now.  I found your sight and am hoping desperately that you can help me improve my life.   I have had some improvement over the past couple of months but it's not something I can pinpoint yet.  I have filed for my disability because stress triggers a manic episode for me.  I'm lost as to what my life is and what it is going to be in the future.
