I’m a 39 year old male who has just recently been diagnosed with bipolar disorder. It’s a new chapter of my life and I am hoping to keep a blog about how I am feeling and how my mental state is effecting my perceptions of different things. I’m a post graduate in Medicinal Chemistry and I am using my knowledge and understanding to research all aspects of Bipolar Disorder and the medications used to become an expert in my own experiences.
I get periods of absolute clarity in my head and I can express myself through writing more than talking. Then I’ll also get periods of total nothingness. When I’m in a good place, I try to get as much as I can documented 👌
I have a mental illness that has been diagnosed as bipolar disorder. Given it a name. The body won’t recognise it because of the name. The name is a way of making the issue subjective and separate. I’m asked how I am feeling and coping with it. The language I have is limited to the words that have been created to describe something. There are no words in my language that can truly explain what I am going through. How do I explain how I feel? Below 👇🏼 is my first attempt at trying to explain the unexplainable
