Hi! I've been in treatment since I was about 12 years old, I had what you could call a " nervous breakdown " when I was in 6th grade. I was first diagnosed with
schizophrenia, but was recently diagnosed with bipolar disorder. They changed my diagnosis because my symptoms changed. I once thought I heard voices, but a few years ago, they pretty much stopped and the mood swings started.
When I was 12 I went to a psychiatric hospital. After that I was in 2 mental health clinics. I'm currently being treated at a daily outpatient center.Despite
all this, I still got my GED!
I am someone with a serious mental illness but you would never know that to look at me.
I keep trying and trying to better myself and not let my illness drag me down.
