I started having problems in 1995 when I was 17 years old. I was dating an older guy (he was 35) and my parents kicked me out of the house. I had to find a place to live and work and finish high school. Of course it didn't work out with the guy so my doctor just thought it was "teenaged angst" and mild depression. I suffered until 2001 when I self-admitted to an inpatient facility. I was there for 12 days and was FINALLY properly diagnosed with bipolar 1 along with depersonalization disorder, social anxiety and panic disorder.
