Growing up I was an ‘ordinary’ teenager with no health concerns. My struggles began in 2013 when I failed to meet my expectations to succeed, and I crumbled when I fell short. At the age of 20, I suffered a mental breakdown, which lead me to being diagnosed with Bipolar Disorder 1: a mood disorder with extreme mood swings, from depression to mania.
It’s been just over two years since I was diagnosed and I haven’t let it stop me from living. I still have hard days where I’m trapped in my blanket fort, but I’ve also experienced many opportunities that I wouldn’t have dreamed possible.
