Anyone who lives with bipolar disorder can understand why I decided to give this blog the name that I have. I have lived with bipolar 2 for most of my life, though I was not diagnosed until I was 18 years old.
If you live with this illness then I am sure you can attest that it is difficult to maintain friendships and relationships, however a strong social support system is an integral part of recovery, thus my current dilemma. So, I decided that since I don’t have a very strong support system in place socially I would try the online community.
I hope this can be an environment of encouragement, sharing, and education. If you are here to judge my story or tell me what I am doing about my illness is wrong, or if you are going to be negative about any mental illness in any way, please just click past and find something else to do with your time. Life is hard enough as it is without ignorant people making us feel worse than we already do.
Thanks for taking your time to read through, and hopefully we can learn from each other and maybe I can shed hope on your situation and you can shed light on mine.
