My story started out with a diagnosis of Bipolar Disorder at age 11. Soon after, a peer from school died in a freak accident. Before I turned 23, I had been to well over 40+ funerals all while dealing with a mood disorder with no cure. My first experience of psychosis was when I was 16. This happened just after my boyfriend of 2 years and first love, also diagnosed with Bipolar Disorder, had hung himself from a swing-set at a park in Winter Garden.
