Do you have anyone in your family that has the same condition as you or another mental illness?

Bipolar and schizophrenia run in my family. I have several family members with both conditions. I think it may have made my diagnosis easier because they knew I had a family history.

I am sure, but no one has or was ever diagnosed. All from the generation of mental illness is something to hide and not treat.

My mom has depression, my step mom has anxiety (not genetic I know but it helps her to understand my bipolar more ) My father's mother was bipolar and had episodes of psychosis. My older sister has depression but my brothers got lucky and are "normal."
