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?

Hi, my name is Lily and I wanted to introduce myself and say Hi. I found out I had Bipolar and have a hard time to make friends in real life. This may be a place to make friends. I am on meds and somewhat stable now but it seems to go back and fourth sometimes. Today I don't feel motivated but am trying to get there.
When I get stressed out I tend to cry a lot. My son is 19 with Aspergers. He gets very angry when he finds me crying. I've tried to explain that I can't help it. It does't matter, he just keeps getting angry at me.
