    I know many of you will say "go see a psychiatrist" and i have. They diagnosed me with Bipolar II, but i need reasurrance. When i was younger i use to have times when i would turn on music and dance around and sing to myself. I once went out shopping and bought very provocative outfits that i would never buy. Another time I went to college for the first time and ended up throwing away all my clothes. Me throwing away all my clothes happens often. I have had times when i was so depressed that I tried killing myself twice. I have ran away from home multiple times. I have attacked my mom twice. I argue a lot with people even my family. This would happen on some days. However, lately since i left home and went to a trade school, I have not been having extremes like in the past. I do argue with people some days. Lately I have not noticed any weird happenings since i left and I left two weeks ago. In the past i use to cut myself. I went from job to job because I would quit due to teasing. Same with school i quit due to teasing

      Often times people with the disease try to restart their lives over and over in an attempt to distance themselves from symptoms. Family can be a trigger. However, you need to learn to live with your family, so cutting them out of your life is not a permanent solution
