She was diagnosed with a psychotic depression halfway through year 12, but she?s had the illness since 12. With depression, she was also diagnosed with Bulimia a few years before psychotic depression and she was sexually abused when she was 6 which was probably the cause for her mental illnesses. She thinks she would still have depression and bulimia despite her being abused. Being abused, she felt dirty, disgusting, a bad person but she hasn?t done anything. She hated herself which led her to bingeing and purging. She thought she wasn?t good enough, pretty enough, smart enough and by throwing up she ate. She would really become depressed when she saw herself as a weak person who couldn?t control herself and her emotions. She had depression, did self-harm and tried to suicide because she had all these problems. The young girl was put on medication, and found a trustworthy counselor who helped her through her time. They encouraged her to write down their thoughts, find a hobby and try to surround her with caring, friendly, happy people because that makes her easier to get out of depression. ...read more.

On the other hand, when there are difficulties managing my disorder, may lose my job, my loved one and have money problems. Having bipolar disorder, I would have to make major changes in my life: Having to have medication for the rest of my life, continuous therapy sessions, change my lifestyle by regulating patterns of my eating sleeping, stress management, and relaxation. If I didn?t have Bipolar Disorder, I would spend the time treating the disorder on more useful activities which can greatly contribute to my life: starting a family, knowing that I will not pass on this disease, and earning more money. ...read more.
