I remember having suicidal thoughts when I was 12. I had problems with depression from an early age and kind of knew I was different. I didn't get a diagnosis or treatment until I was 18.

I have a hard time remembering a lot from my childhood... which worries me. I was made fun of a lot because I'm so short and was also overweight as a child/teenager. I know that has really affected me emotionally. I am still so extremely self conscious about how I look...and that has really taken a toll on my confidence. I'm just grateful I have been given a husband who loves me for who I am.

Oh yeah I did! I was in counseling early because my parents divorced and I was back and forth between houses. I used to start fires and actually got expelled for lighting the school bus on fire. I know now (as a rational adult) I was doing it for attention, not because I'm a pyro.
I used to wake up in the middle of the night having panic attacks and night terrors too. I'd run to my parent's room and try to explain my feelings but they brushed them off as "Oh, you were just having a dream" or "You are NOT dying and you are not staying up late, go back to bed!" I swear if I ever have kids I will never brush them off like that especially at night. My panic episodes were worse at night and had no one to turn to

As a child, no. Age 10-12 was when I started having issues. At 14 I had a psychotic episode. Got proper treatement around age 16.

I didn't have problems as a child but they started in early teen years. My mom didn't see it. Compared to my siblings, I was (am still am) the really stable one. My brother got therapy for their divorce, though. I even said I though I needed help but was told to look up someone to see myself. I got help for myself at age 23.
Mom to 4 girls - age 11 (1/05), 9 year old twins (1/07), 21 months (7/14) and baby BOY is due May 26, 2016.
