Hi guys! My name is Christi. I’m 30-years old with a fiance, 2 dogs, and Bipolar II. My journey began in high school. I was a very depressed perfectionist and had trouble keeping friends. That led into eating disorders (both anorexia and bulimia) treated sporadically by various campus doctors, until 2004, when me and my eating disordered butt landed into the office of my current psychiatrist. We worked through the eating disorders and depression, until 2006 when I checked into the hospital and was diagnosed Bipolar II. I was released into a full-time outpatient therapy program, which I completed in March 2007. There I learned a great deal, not just about myself and my own illness, but about relating to others and healthy relationships. I am currently working full-time as a paralegal and I am an author on the website for Ask A Bipolar.
