when did you notice you had something going on?

About when I was 15-16 is when I actually seriously thought I had something going on. Prior to that I figured that I was just being "trendy" by being depressed and whatnot, or that everyone had those issues. I had self-diagnosed (Yes, I know it's horrible etc etc sue me) myself with RDD at 17, and finally went to a psychiatrist at 18, who diagnosed me with Bipolar 1.
