What Bipolar Is and Isn’t: Part One

I’m starting off a little series of posts talking about what bipolar disorder is and what it is not, to try to raise awareness in a different format, to try to provide some information about the disorder and the common misconceptions about it.

    Thank you for writing an excellent description of this very sensitive subject.

    I work both as a facilitator in the US for the families of those suffering from Schizophrenia, Bipolar disorder and clinical depression for over 15 years, and as coach and navigator.
    There is hope in all of this, but having solid, reliable information is first. Keep this up!

    Nice to read your introductory post! I find it is so many different moods! They are just hard to ‘shake’ instead of normal moods!

      Thank you so much, very kind of you and definitely hard to shake! It’s tough. Sending my love.

    I also appreciated your blog. I’m bipolar type 2 and treatment resistant so meds have yet to work on me so it is difficult. Hard to explain but your blog does a good job. If possible i’d love for you to delve into some of the cognitive symptoms that accompany bi-polar depression- that’s what is preventing me from working at the moment 🙁

      Thanks so much for reading and commenting! I’m so glad you liked the article. I’d be really interested in talking to you more about being med resistant and the cognitive symptoms you experience, would you be happy for me to email you to discuss further your experiences in a view to me talking about them in a future blog? x
