But as you have a got a number of illnesses I think it would be worth having them available and regular appointments as someone to turn to when things get rough or when you relapse and perhaps it's bearing in mind that therapies and meds are just strategies to assist you in the same way as having a long term physical illness. It's up to ensure you eat well, manage stress, reduce smoking, and react to situations.
It's also about symptom management and finding ways to cope with the illness by looking at ways in which it rears its ugly head, are there certain triggers that set it off at work for instance or at home?
Do you have a symptom diary it's worth keeping a log in your phone of where, when/why, etc, and looking at what you can do to prevent/reduce the severity.
