A little bit about myself..

As a teenager, I had to grow up but the roots of my mental issues today stemmed a lot from those years. I was picked on a lot and I did things to the extreme.  My current mindset began to develop around this time. I have an all-or-nothing, black-and-white mindset.  That is the best way to describe how I think and I feel about things.  One day at age 19, I was diagnosed as having been bipolar after all that was wrong with me.  I had suicidal thoughts, I could not get along with my roommate, and my grades went down.  Over the years, I no longer had suicidal thoughts, I never saw my roommate again, and I managed to end up with a passing GPA.  I was diagnosed as bipolar and then hospitalized in 1994.  I graduated from college in 1997, after transferring from school and not going for a year.
