Customer Question

I have recently been diagnosed with bi-polar, i have experienced the manic highs during which I was hospiatalised and now I am comming to terms with the cripelling lows. I was usually so outgoing and talkative but now I am isolating myself from everyone amd i'm afraid to socialise. Will I ever get back to my old self?

How long does it take to fully recover from first episode psychosis?

Hello, I am here for you and am happy to respond. Please tell me who made the Bi-Polar diagnosis, psychiatrist, family doctor? Are you on medications for the Bi-PD? If so, what are you taking and are you taking your meds regularly? Thanks, Eleanor
