      Diagnosed in 2020. I did the research before confronting my psychiatrist about my possible diagnosis so it didn’t come as a shock but coming to terms with all the aspects of it is difficult. The best thing is to understand you are not your illness and you can do things in spite of it. You just have to find the balance between medication, self care, and symptom management.

      Newly diagnosed bipolar here as well. Having an official diagnosis helps me better understand how my mind works. The meds definitely help with the mood swings but also what you do, the company you keep, etc. I don’t let it define me as a human being. And it isn’t something to be ashamed or embarrassed about. I’m so many other good things in addition to bipolar.

      Hi! I was diagnosed with bipolar disorder in February. I had trouble accepting it at first, and I definitely still do. What helped me accept it was realizing that I was aware of my condition and I was learning how to manage it better. I started medication when I was diagnosed and I felt like a different person. I felt like I had no emotions whatsoever. It was really difficult to me to figure out who I was with medication, since I was living with bipolar without realizing it, and I thought it was just my personality. Slowly I’ve been better. It’s only been 2 months and I am extremely happier than before. It’s a process, and it’s different journey for everyone. Just know that your diagnosis is a step in creating a better and stable life for yourself.

      It’s been 3 years and I am still having issues accepting. Medications didn’t help that much, and I just got kicked out of school. Things will get better I just don’t know when
