Do you think bipolarity might be in the genes? My psychiatrist is convinced I am not bipolar as she thinks I am actually very stable and my depression from last year was due to a general breakdown. But apparently, it's in the genes (of course not only genes determinate your bipolarity)...
Yea I was 16 when I was diagnosed (pretty much when I discovered this forum actually, coincidence?)
I think all mood related disorders can be inherited, for example my mom suffered of major depression when she was my age & then again another episode when I was little, so did my dad, my grandma is bipolar too (she refuses treatment).
