Sanity score 81
I am new to posting here (my 2nd post actually), though I have got comfort, encouragement from reading the posts here, lurking as a guest. I am 37 year old guy from India. Diagnosed with BP when I was 18. Life has been a roller coaster since then..I moved and lived in 4 different countries (excluding my own) in the last 10 years. Always had a full time job since I was 19, though I just had to give up a job recently due to depression/ severe anxiety attacks, and other factors at work/home:-( I had to move back home to India and rebuild my life all over again. Fun!!:-( Meeting with my pdoc soon and will ask for a recommendation for a good therapist in my city. I managed to go out and attend an interview today at an international school (I'm an English teacher and teach high school English/ESL) and it's looking good as I've been asked to go back for a second round of interview. Fingers crossed. I need the job as I'm almost broke.
Anyway, a big 'Hello' everyone:-) Just took my sanity quiz and my score is 81. Is that a good score?

Re: Sanity score 81
Hello Lost: Thanks for sharing your score. It's been quite a while since I took the Sanity Score test. But, as I recall, anything under 100 is considered to be pretty good... more-or-less "normal"... whatever that is. Anyway, good luck with the job search!
In cultivating compassion we draw from the wholeness of our experience—our suffering, our empathy, as well as our cruelty and terror. It has to be this way. Compassion is not a relationship between the healer and the wounded. It’s a relationship between equals. Only when we know our own darkness well can we be present with the darkness of others. Compassion becomes real when we recognize our shared humanity. Pema Chödrön- The Places That Scare You
