My name is Susan. I am twenty-two and was diagnosed with bipolar I in 2013 while in college. College meant the key to my future and to have that taken away right in front of my eyes was horrific. I want to inspire young adults to get help and to realize that having to drop out of college to take care of yourself actually is the best thing one can do for recovery and themselves. I enjoy writing, the beach, and hiking with my dog.
