I was diagnosed with Bipolar Disorder at the age of 23 after being misdiagnosed since 21. Being placed on different medications through the years I said I will no longer live as a Zombie.

So I took over my illness instead of it taking over my life I learned my triggers and I’ve adjusted myself how to approach before it becomes an issue. This how I cope through everyday life, do I take my meds like I’m supposed to, I try …do I see a therapist like I’m supposed to ..I try but I can’t relate to someone who hasn’t walked in my shoes to know what’s happening in my head.

So my advice embrace who you are and what you have and don’t be ashamed but educate the unfamiliar”
