Good Afternoon Everyone

So. After suffering for 15 years, without any help from the system, what started off as standard depression, and general odd behaviours, I finally have a diagnosis. I have Bipolar, PTSD and Emotionally Unstable Personality Disorder.

Odd thing is im happy about my diagnosis. Shame that the mental health services are so bad. Ive had to go private to get the diagnosis i need. Im treated, with therapy and lamotrogine 200mg a day and upped if my depression hits allow. When i have a manic or depressive episode i have learnt to stop drinking.

However, more recently, i have attached a fake ego to my self, that i genuinely believe exists.This happened a few years ago. But i had episodes of believing i was a tv interview show.

Im trying to find out if I am the only one this happens too. This is more concerning as i believe I am genuinely in a relationship with this alter ego. To a point ive even told people that I am. Its behaviour that just happens without realising and its not til the next day im doing it.... I can't tell people cause then i look stupid and I just don't know what to think about it anymore.
