Something I Am Proud Of:

Existing with bipolar disorder and other comorbid mental illnesses is something that I often remind myself is more than enough to be proud of. I am proud that I exemplify courage and resilience and refuse to settle for anything less than what I deserve.

Advice For Newly Diagnosed:

There are a few tips I would like to give to the newly diagnosed:

  1. Surround yourself with positive people.
  2. Live for yourself and do not feel obligated to let others impose their will on you.
  3. Be assertive with medical professionals and everyone else in your life.
  4. Take no shit.
  5. Remind yourself of how much of a badass you are for just existing!
