    I just need someone to sit in my room

    So... I was diagnosed at 17

    when I almost had a melt down in my sophomore English class. A lot of people think being "bipolar" means you have mood swings and that's it. It's not. Yes, you have mood swings but it's not like one would think. For me, it's being one extreme and then exchanging it for another...
