I am a woman in her mid-40′s who has been diagnosed as  Bipolar II.  Being diagnosed with a mental illness is an exhausting experience.  Being told you have an affliction from which ‘recovery’ is not an option, that will degenerate and possibly become deadly if not treated and that carries a high social stigma – well, it can really ruin your day.  That’s why I research and write.  If my blog can help just one person help face or cope with a mental illness – mission accomplished!
