Introduction

Hello! Glad to meet you all. I'm a 37-year-old woman newly diagnosed as of about three weeks ago. I joined the forum to get some insight on things because my psychiatrist is confusing me lol. All in all things are going pretty good with new medication. I really wish I had figured this out earlier in my life, but what can ya do but move forward. Looking forward to getting to know y'all and learn from you.

Re: Introduction

Welcome ...and I'm in your neck of the woods ... assuming you are from Philly, Pa.

Message me if you wanna talk about providers, etc. It is hard to find good psychiatrists (or psychiatrists) in Philly who take insurance.

You are ahead of me. I got diagnosed when I was 48. One of the very best things to have happened to me. Seriously. Gave me more insight into my life than I had ever had before. The diagnosis explained so many of my struggles and took away the stigma I was carrying about my struggles with deadlines and attention and organization.

Paradoxically, with the diagnosis, I owned up to my struggles in a clean way instead of spending all kinds of time minimizing them and hiding them and continuing in the same rut--all the while feeling inadequate and defective.
