Something I Am Proud Of:

Being unapologetically me. When I was first diagnosed with Bipolar Disorder, I was in denial and afraid of the stigma that surrounded mental health disorders. It took me a year to finally share with my friends and family. Now, I am proud of how far I’ve come towards treatment, a support system, and advocating for mental health awareness.

Advice For Newly Diagnosed:

Knowledge is power. The more you learn about your diagnosis and treatment options, the stronger you will become towards creating a plan that’s right for you. I also recommend tracking your mood daily to better assess your episode length, triggers, and tendencies.
