Welcome to the board!
I was diagnosed with bipolar 3 years ago at the age of 35, but my pdoc and tdoc think I've been showing clear symptoms of the disorder since age 20.
When I think back, I experienced manic episodes during my teens, but didn't know it since I had no idea what mania was.
I'm just glad to be diagnosed and am not someone who goes their entire lives showing signs of bipolar without being diagnosed.
