Hi. I've been diagnosed for 11 years and am lucky my pill count is sill only around 18 a day as the dosage levels and controlled release types were introduced.
My specialist summed me and my attitude up in his recent letter to my GP. It referred to me as being one to live life full on and aside from my intention (today) to abseil the Spinnaker Tower have shown No Other signs of increased compulsive behaviour.
I'm still laughing at that summation of my attitude. It's what keeps me going and looking forward to making the most of the time I have.
Always look on the bright side of life (of Brian not Brain).
