The Family Curse

Almost every member of my mother's side of the family has suffered from bipolar or depression. I had an aunt and an uncle who committed suicide because of this, but of course that was back when nobody really knew what bipolar was. Now most of my family has been treated and has been able to move on and lead fairly normal lives. Unfortunately I was unable to escape the family curse and had a break down a few years ago and was diagnosed with bipolar II disorder and major depressive disorder. I struggle everyday and I hope that one day I will be able to overcome this and be ok like the rest of my family.Some families suffer from heart disease and cancer I guess this is just the illness my family battles.
