When I was 15 i started showing symptoms of Bipolar disorder. However i have recently read the book The Gifted Adult by Mary-Elaine Jacobsen and have been enlightened to find that my behaviour isn't out of the ordinary for everyday genius's. I had been to many councillors and had never felt helped but this book has really helped me to accept me for the person I am and to understand the reasons. Illnesses such as ADHD, OCD, aspurgers and depression have also sometimes been mistaken for giftedness.
