I was diagnosed at 17 with manic depression which I believe was brought upon by childhood trauma including sexual abuse. Twenty years later, through five suicide attempts, four breakdowns, and six hospitalizations I am now diagnosed with multiple mental illnesses, but I am more whole, stable, happy and mentally healthier than I have ever been.
