Just don't be surprised if the rest of us have crappy days too. We accept each other for what we are, and have no illusions that these moods will happen for us all our lives.

Re: New here with bipolar

Hello and welcome.

There is nothing to be ashamed of. We are all living with this condition and at times it makes things seem downright miserable. The most important thing to remember is you are not alone. Often people like us tend to isolate and coming to a place like this, even a virtual one, helps us remember that we are connected. I hope you can find out more information about getting meds where you are. Who diagnosed you and what meds did they suggest?

Once agian welcome.

Re: New here with bipolar

Thanks for the welcome. I got diagnosed about a month ago back in New Zealand. I am originally from there. Ive been in Aus for 2 weeks. I went to the doctor because I was depressed and on the verge of killing myself. I had to go for my son. The doctor was concerned and sent me to a specialist. The doctor was a kind man. After I told him my life story and money problems he paid for me to go see the specialist. I was diagnosed with both ADHD and Bipolar. He was concerned that my upbringing might have somehow affected me as well. I moved to Australia to get away from my ex-boyfriend who was threatening both me and my son. It wasnt his son but another ex who is in prison.

Re: New here with bipolar

A lifestyle change is important to the condition, as are the meds. Healing is difficult without a balanced approach. I hope as you start to heal that you are able to mke the necessary changes for you and your son.

I'm pretty sure NZers are entitled to the PBS which makes meds much much cheaper.

Have a look here:

Crazyfeet: PBS is the Pharmaceutical Benefits Scheme, the government pays for most of the important meds and you end up paying around $5 for most scripts.

Re: New here with bipolar

Overseas visitors from countries with which Australia has a Reciprocal Health Care Agreement (RHCA) are also eligible to access the Scheme. Australia currently has RHCAs with: Italy, New Zealand, the Republic of Ireland, Finland, Malta, the Netherlands, Sweden, Norway and the United Kingdom.

Residents of these countries must show their passports when lodging a prescription to prove their eligibility or they can contact Medicare and get a Reciprocal Health Care Agreement Card to prove their eligibility. Some overseas visitors may not be eligible for this card.


I got that from the website. Thanks.

Re: New here with bipolar

i think that New Zealanders qualify for alot of benefits in aus as well. Is that right? I'm looking into at the moment. We need a bit more money to live on.

Re: New here with bipolar

You might try messaging Ozchris himself about that. He's a very nice man.
