I've never seen a doctor, or been diagnosed with a mental illness, but depression runs in my family. My grandmother committed suicide because of it. My sister is a clinical psychologist. She's been diagnosed with borderline, and believes I have it too. Given the symptoms, I'm sure that I do. But here's the next part.. I've always been extremely moody. So much so, that everyone I've ever dated has called me bi-polar. I get angry and say that I'm just moody, then in sarcasm call them "doctor". Now I'm 37, and this is still happening. I'm beginning to think their all right. How do I know? are there specific symptoms or signs? Or is it just mood swings?
