Bipolar support my story

When I was first diagnosed with bipolar disorder, I was scared and didn’t know what to do. Thanks to medication and getting the right help, I am more open to talking about my mental health journey.

I want to be a support system for others who are going through similar struggles as me. Bipolar disorder can have a huge effect on your life but you don’t have to go through it alone. It can be so hard when you feel like no one understands what you’re going through but there’s always someone out there who does get it and is ready to talk.

Reaching out for help can be scary, especially when it comes to mental illness but I promise you won’t regret it! There are so many amazing support systems online or in person that can provide the comfort we all need and deserve. Whether it’s just having someone listen to your story or finding the right type of therapy, there is always help out there if you just take that first step and reach out.

It’s ok not to have everything figured out and it’s ok not to be fully comfortable talking about your experiences with bi-polar disorder. What matters most is that you take care of yourself, reach out for help if needed and celebrate even the smallest victories!

And you’re definitely right about celebrating those small victories - they matter so much. Keep taking care of yourself and keep being that supportive voice for others. You’re doing amazing!
