Some of you might know me from my previous posts, regarding my own mental health battles.
An update : I'm getting there, I'm regularly seeing someone at a mental health centre so I'm keeping positive!
Now... I started a new job, which is great. One of the girls (let's call her Megan) I know from previous years and I was surprised when I saw she worked I the same office.
She was known for being a manipulative liar (basically twisting things to suit her and lying to others to turn people against each other).
I'm very open about my mental health, as I hope it will at least help a few people to forget the stigma.
Megan then told me she has bipolar, anxiety, and borderline personality disorder.
A few things have stuck out to me that don't make sense...
1) she is only on one medication, Lamotrigine, and says she might be put into Lithium too.
2) we live in the same town and she has commented on going to the same centre as me, however she says she can only go upon referral (she was already referred), and in my experience once I'd been referred I didn't have to see my GP again as they would keep in touch regularly
3) she has told me and another girl that she is slightly going off the rails again, but refuses our help. I've even suggested that we go together to the centre but she quickly back tracked saying they wouldn't remember her - surely they'd keep patient records for a certain length of time?
4) she says she refuses to see her GP about other meds that might help her, but she must see her GP enough to pick up her prescription and review her Lamotrigine?
I need help understanding because I'm taking it badly that someone could lie about this. Why would they? It's all awful to live with!
Any words of experience and advice? (I've tried asking her questions which she wouldn't know but she ignores me and will respond once she has researched, sounding like a wiki page!!!)
