“Bipolar. When my physiatrist told me I had a type of bipolar disorder, I actually laughed at his face. I thought he was joking. I had friends who had bipolar disorder and I acted nothing like them. I didn’t have bizarre manic highs for days, which is the typical image when you think of bipolar. It turns out there is more than one type of bipolar disorder.”
