  1. Hello, I've heard a lot of stuff about bipolar disorder getting "worse" over time, but usually in reference to it being unmedicated. I'm 32, almost 33. I was only diagnosed 4 years ago, although I suspect I've had it essentially my entire life. I remember being depressed and suicidal when I was eleven. I just didn't realize I was suicidal because I didn't have a word to describe how I was feeling, at the time. So my question is: for those of you who are older than me - I mean like, over 35 - does this get worse over time? Does it get better? Does it not change? Could I look forward to maybe the latter part of my life being pretty okay? Is there a point where you're old enough that you basically just... calm down? Mom used to seem like she had a lot of problems, herself, but she never took medication and she seems like she's been fine starting with when she went through menopause. My own experience: Depressed around 9 y.o. Really depressed around 11 y.o... I got "better" when I was maybe 14 or so, and was okay until I was maybe 24. Then things went downhill, until I was diagnosed at 28, with a bumpy ride until around 30. I started taking medication when I was 29, and I still take medication. I still have a lot of anxiety and occasional suicidal ideation - particularly at night - but it goes in cycles. It gets worse in the spring, but it's been... less bad? I think the big change that made things a lot better was finding my current fiancé . I'm switching from Seroquel to Latuda (almost there), and hoping I can drop the lamictal and just take one pill for the rest of my life, but I don't know if that's possible. I just really wish it was.
  2. I'm new here. So, hi! Was just curious about what sort of age did it hit you? In Prozac Nation, Elizabeth Wurtzel, she says about 11yrs. Do you think this is possible? Opinions. Thanks.
