When were you diagnosed?
And for how long have you known something was wrong?

I have known that I was different since I was 12. That was the first time I ever had a suicidal thought. I was diagnosed with bipolar disorder at 18. So I've been dealing with this a really long time. It runs in my family so in a way that helps because I have a support system and my dh is an amazing support person for me.

Re: When were you diagnosed?
I was diagnosed with depression/anxiety for the first time about 8 years ago when i was going through my first divorce. For years before that I had issues dealing with things since I was about 12 when my grandmother passed away I used to cut myself and when i was with my first ex husband i done drugs and drank alot. he was very abusive and its taken me years to forgive him for what he put me through. I was on Lexapro for just a couple months and I went off of it because I got pregnant with my daughter. After that I never had insurance and couldn't afford to go to the dr. Finally last year I hit a breaking point of crying constantly and just not knowing what to even do so I went to the dr and got on new medication. One of the best decisions i have made because it has helped me so much.
