Hi am Lori, I found out I had bipolar at 20. My mom was hospitalized most of her married life. She had many issues of mental illness. As I grew older and understood more about bipolar I was surprised to hear of how many people had it as I thought my mom’s secret and mine was not spoken of. I have had mania for months at a time. I was hospitalized at 18 mostly because of depression but also mania.
