UPDATE: As far as we can tell, all posts made by The Mix account in the last 12 months (roughly) have been lost. We're working to retrieve them, but for now you might see some gaps or seemingly unanswered questions lying around the forums. It also means the Live Chat Announcements and We Need You sub-forums are looking pretty bare. Bear with us, we're working on it.

  • Hi I'm Ellie

    I'm 20 years old and a very shy, I struggle in many social situations as I'm a very anxious person. I was diagnosed with bipolar 2 when I was 18 and over the past couple of years it has been a real struggle. I have a huge amount of support from my family but sometimes feel that I am a burden and bring them down. I have a partner who I've been with for 6 years and every day he does his best to make me smile. Although I have all of these amazing people in my life I don't want them to feel like its their responsibility to make me happy. After I was diagnosed i didn't (and still haven't) recive/d any support. I am on permanent medication to try help but at the moment it isn't even working. I wanted to know if there was some alternative to more/different medication. I just need some new kind of support or advice or just how to cope daily when I feel like this .
    Many thanks
