About me

In 2004 I was diagnosed with atypical depression. I learned to live with it. I had my medication, I have undertaken therapy, and I was convinced everything was going to be just fine, especially once I recovered in 2006 and stopped my medication.

Five years of unmedicated life were followed by a relapse. After seven months I thought I recovered. I started to build a new life with fire and passion. My shyness was gone, replaced by fearlessness. I was creative, energetic and happy. Sometimes I was so happy I cried a bit, and that was what made me lower the dosage of my medication until one day I woke up with depression yet again.

Two months later, on my 35th birthday, I got diagnosed with Bipolar II disorder. This blog is where I am going to document my new bipolar life as well as I can.
