i'll preface my question with some history. i've been mentally ill all my life, and have received or been considered for a host of diagnoses: depressive NOS, bipolar NOS, major depressive disorder, dysthymia, OCD, PTSD, GAD, social anxiety disorder, panic disorder, borderline personality disorder, schizotypal personality disorder, schizoaffective disorder. now, that's a whole shitload of disorders, and i'm sure i don't have all of them. most of them, even. my current set of diagnoses is PTSD and bipolar NOS. my question, or set of questions, for yall is: when were you initially diagnosed? with what were you originally diagnosed? if you weren't diagnosed as bipolar right off the bat, when did you/your clinician(s) figure it out?
