I haven't been here long, but have read a few comment from some of you on how long you have been bi-polar. A few years, just recently, etc. As for myself, I was officially diagnosed about 10 years ago after several years of misdiagnosis and wrong meds. As I really study my lifetime, I look back at the times when I would "get bored" and cut my hair in a way nobody else was wearing theres, or self pierce another hole in my ear, or get mad at a job and just walk out without considering where my next dollar for a loaf of bread was coming from, or break up with a boyfriend because of something stupid, or pull my little brother's hair just because it was blonde and pretty. I don't know about the rest of you, but I was BORN bi-polar. I was sweet or mean. I was happy and outgoing, or insecure and withdrawn. Think about it. Did you really just one day become bi-polar?

I just can't stay in that building that is reeking mildew...
