Fantastic how you’ve turned that shit round to feeling so positive again. I hope this gives others encouragement. My younger lad has had private counselling for a couple of years now. He has bi-polar. It hasn’t “cured” him, and never will, because that’s the nature of the beast. However, it certainly helps to keep things under control and assists him in organising his life. He was adamant that he didn’t want medication, so this has proved worthwhile. Help on the NHS seems to be very limited so I mention this as a possibility for anyone for whom it might be relevant.
