I was diagnosed with Bipolar II disorder at the age of 30.
I had lived undiagnosed for more than half of my life. I was often experiencing mixed episodes, was rapid cycling, and was rarely out of an episode. My depressions were deep, dark, and seemingly endless.
After years of therapy, lifestyle changes, and intensive personal work, I achieved remission and sobriety in May of 2019.
Shortly after, I decided to make an Instagram dedicated to sharing my story. I hope to dismantle the stigma attached to bipolar disorder and mental illnesses in general. I feel compelled to share my story with others so that my path may later be a map for someone else to know they are not travelling the road alone.
Welcome to My Bipolar Life.
