No but i do think my 16 year old daughter does. I think shes had it for years but nobody will diagnose her as she just refuses to talk to drs. Shell just sit there until we leave..

I'm glad you're at least trying. I started going to therapy at 15 and didn't get properly diagnosed with bipolar disorder until I was 29. I didn't want to go to therapy at that age either but eventually realized I needed it to be healthy mentally.

How has it been for you during those four years after learning you were diagnosed with it?

Well, I'm a lot more stable than I was before the diagnosis. I am on 5 meds and have a good therapist now. But my symptoms are still very much present and I'm worried that my life and moods will always be chaotic.

@Kate It's good that you are finding some stability. You are doing everything right to improve your moods. Do you accept yourself?

@Joseph I'm doing my best to accept myself. It's hard when you do when others can be so critical of mental health things that you can't really control.

@Kate Yes. I know what you mean. You are already so strong from everything you've been through. Don't let people who are so closed minded change how you feel about yourself. You got this.
