My name is Courtney and I have Bipolar II. Whew I’m glad that’s over with because starting this feels a bit like a group session. I’m hoping that I get more comfortable as I type. I’ve been diagnosed for a few years now and I like to be well informed on things especially when I’m directly affected.
There are a lot of books and articles out there on Bipolar disorder. But there’s not a lot of info on Bipolar II. Sure, it gets some honorable mention by getting a couple of pages put in a book or a paragraph or two in an article. That’s not enough. Bipolar I and Bipolar II have their similarities but when you have one or the other they are worlds apart. Bipolar II has it’s own difficulties, quirks and triumphs.
I crave more information, sharing and discussion. So I’m starting this blog to share information I’ve learned, fight stigma and ignite more discussion. I hope you check in often to see how I do on my rookie blog adventure. Post #2 coming soon!
