Thought It Was Pms
In my younger twenties, I would cry for no good reason.. writing it all off the my cycle.. later, I had the 'boo hoos' all month and was dx with mild to moderate depression which later developed into panic attacks and later developed into bi polar disorder.
Looking back.. I can now see I had the mania all my life.. accounting for a lot of inappropriate youthful behaviors.. (but also my quirky sense of humor and creativity)..
It's been wonderful since being properly diagnosed and treated (3 years ago). I've never felt better!! Happy and Balanced now and LOVING IT!
