For quite a few years of untreated or undertreated bipolar disorder I would cycle from one mood extreme to the other.

When you lose someone in your life that is close to you, there’s a part of you that dies as well.

It felt like if I just pushed that notion to the back of my mind, I could make the whole concept disappear.
