Im 36 years old, diagnosed with major depressive disorder, bipolar disorder, generalized anxiety disorder, ptsd, panic attacks and chronic insomnia. I take 8 medications daily to help combat my many mental illnesses but i refuse to succomb to my illnesses, ever. I also have a 15 yr old son who unfortunately inherited my bipolar disorder as well as my anxiety so needless to say ive had one hell of a battle with mental illness myself and regarding him as well.
