Happy, happy 20th to you both! (a little late
@Emmy Lou - I'm the same way. I'm so glad I found this place. The first time I bawled was when I read an article when my d18 was earlier diagnosed as bi-polarII & recurrent major depressive. The article was giving advice as to not what to say to people, i.e telling them their lazy, and some other things. The same words had been coming out of my mouth into my daughter's ears since she was like 8 years old. The guilt and worthlessness that overcame me was tremendous. I just sat and bawled! My family is still not totally on board with her diagnosis. Most ofthem still think she does things for attention!
