i'm the baby. out of my sisters (all 6 of them!) i'm the only one to be hospitalized. i'm the only one to see a therapist on a regular basis. i'm th eonly one to be on medication for an extended period of time. (and i'm the only one to do some really crazy stuff while manic or depressed.) i don't htink my sisters have ever had a full out manic attack.
but, i also feel like i'm the best one :) serisouly though, i feel i'm a heck of a lot better at coping (one sister goes to full out shut down mode. even with little things like cars breaking down or sick kids.). maybe it's more of a blessing that i'm so crazy, so i'll be used to handling crisis? (big question mark??)i also find i'm the most neurotic too. (though my sister babs is awfully neurotic too. then again, who isn't?)
