Hi all!

I live with Bi Polar I, PTSD and Anxiety. I’ve joined this forum as a way to connect with people who experience some of the challenges that I do.


That being said, I do have a pretty wonderful life. Cats that I love and some wonderfully supportive people around me.


So Hello!


How are we all tonight?

Re: Hello!

@misscecilia  Hi misscecilia and welcome to the forumsSmiley Happy. I am doing well tonight and I hope you are too. I was firstly diagnosed with bipolar 1 and now am diagnosed with schizoaffective disorder.  There are lots of people who love cats on the forum in fact I am sure there is a cat thread called all about cats! if you want to take a look Smiley Happy.


Another good thread to take a look at is the good morning thread. It goes on 24 hours and is a nice way to meet different people. Anyway I will let you go but just another thing if you want to talk with someone inparticular put a @ infront of their name like I did for you and they will receive a notification of your post Smiley Happy.


Take care and I will see you around the forum. peax
