Updated: I am a 27 year old who has been tentatively diagnosed with borderline personality disorder. My symptoms match exactly, so there really is no reason not to believe that the tentative diagnosis will become the final diagnosis. At nearly 27, I am as of yet undiagnosed with bipolar disorder. I suspect that I am bipolar II. I looked for the diagnosis to match my symptoms instead of making up symptoms to put me in that category.
I also had a long fight with schizophrenia from 8 to 21 years of age, but never told anyone about it until recently. You can read on the blog how I figured out what was what.
I was diagnosed with major/deep depression when I was ten and did have therapy thereafter. Doc said I was cured and let me go on my merry way. Little did he know that I was just on a manic upswing. I only recently *in the last 2 years* took a look back to figure out where it all began. I know how, just not when.
I was abused as a child and teen…verbally, physically, emotionally, sexually… by various people in my life. I am trying to write a book about it but it’s danged hard.
This is the blog that I use to chronicle most of what I go through now and what I am doing about it. I also use it as a platform to talk to people about other health issues including depression.
