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?

I spent six weeks in the hospital following my overdose. I’m heading home now. I quit my job and will be going to intensive outpatient program. I’m just happy to be going back to my family. I missed them dearly
I remember how much I thought I had bipolar, I honestly still go happy sad happy sad happy sad every once in a while, not even realizing I’m doing it half the time. It runs pretty bad in our family, just any mental illnesses, really. My parents both take medicine, my mom’s bipolar and so is her dad, my grandfather. Things like that. I remember telling the doctor how my mood would go like that...
