My name is Linda and I live in Louisiana. I was diagnosed in 2006 at the age of 43. But I was what they call high strung most of my life. I did not recognize that there was anything wrong til I was diagnosed. I have been on anti-depressants as long as I can remember. I spent us into bankruptcy, tore the house apart, with the ruse I was a great carpenter, and started and destroyed 3 businesses in 5 years. Hence the bankruptcy.
I have been stable for the past couple of years. And enjoying my grandchildren. I have not been able to work for the past few years but I keep busy. Stay strong there is always hope.
