it's funny really, i always knew i wasn't OK. but who really is OK?
everyone i know has something they are battling with mentally.
2014 - 5 years ago - that is when it started -
anxiety, depression, crazy episode of complete happiness then a nosedive into darkness.
it grandually escalated, i lost my mind. alopecia 2018
mental breakdown in 2018
suicide attempt 2019
all this led to my diagnosis.
Bipolar type 2.
In short I can switch from euphoric to happy to angry to hysterically upset in the blink of an eye. it's almost impossible to control my emotions.
most of the time I have no idea why i get angry. sometimes i can't remember an episode.
it all depends of the day - but unlile most people I cant wake up knowing if I will have a good day or bad day. It's Russian Roulette and it changes from minute to minute, hour to hour.
you don't look bipolar - is an actusl commet I have had thrown at me in normal conversation.
who looks "Bipolar"?
what does "Bipolar" look like?
am i missing something?
i've got alot to learn yet, it's only early days.
