bulletA Story of Bipolar Disorder 

After twenty-eight years of symptoms, on-again off-again episodes of depression with anxiety, dark thoughts and blue moods interspersed with high energy phases and irritable outbursts, at age forty-five, I was finally diagnosed with a bipolar II mood disorder, a form of manic depression. For the first time, I had the right medical words to understand myself. I wasn’t a mad, a bad or a sad person, just a person with a mood disorder. After decades of brain problems, no wonder I was anxious.
