On January 22, 2015, I was diagnosed with bipolar disorder at the age of 27. Odd thing is, my mom didn't seem too shocked, neither did my siblings. They said they always knew I was a little different. One said I've always been extremely "passionate" about things that I wanted to do no matter what. A lot of things became clear to me once I was diagnosed, I guess it became the "why" to all the erratic things I've done that I vaguely remember. So now what do I do?
