    Blah

    I've gotten one diagnosis: bipolar type II.  I have no idea how accurate this is.  Sometimes I wonder if it's actually borderline personality disorder.  My mood changes are insane.  I may be happy the first half of the day and then a few hours later on...

    Sometimes I Feel So Old

    I've been living with a mood disorder for 25 years. I'm 39 as I write this, and sometimes I feel like I'm 139. I've been depressed. I've been manic. I've been delusional. I've had panic attacks. I've dissociated. I've been through a lot. I still suffer.
