Hi Im Stephanie. I'm 32. I was Diagnosed BiPolar 1 at 12 years old and was diagnosed with PCOS and hypothyroidism at 27. I joined this app to meet people that can relate.

      Hello Stephanie! I can relate. I was diagnosed with schizoaffective (not sure if I spelled that right, it's basically like all the symptoms of schizophrenia and bipolar in one) and ptsd at 10 years old. It's been a struggle but I've learned many things about myself along the way, and now have a goal to use my experiences to help others by educating myself and volunteering in my community. I also was diagnosed with chronic pain about 8 years ago, for me the pain is located mostly in my lower abdomen but extends into my arms and legs as it worsens. I also have thyroid issues (not sure if it's hypo or hyper, no one has yet explained that to me in a way I understand). When my thyroid medication needs adjustment, it affects my other diagnoses and makes me gain unexpected weight. And the weight is so hard to loose, ugh! But anyways, I hope thos is somewhat what you were looking for and feel free to comment or send a DM if you want to chat.

      Can relate as well! I take a fairly low dose of levothyroxine and a bollus of double my prescription strength twice a week. It seems to keep my thyroid in normal levels. I find my mood stability is impacted by poor thyroid function when it is off.
