  • 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
