I was just diagnosed with another mental illness (Bipolar Disorder) and I have so many mixed feelings. It is helpful because it makes so much sense when I think of past experiences, feelings/etc. over the years, but at the same time I am thinking, “why do I have to have yet another diagnosis?”. “And why are my sisters so normal?” I’m kind of struggling with separating all my diagnoses from myself. Right now, I often feel like my whole life is taken up by work & recovery and while that is better than perhaps not being in recovery, I need to figure out who I am as a person. I am working really hard to try and discover hobbies/interests & maintain my friendships outside of my recovery friends so I have more balance in my life. Anyone feel the same way?
