Newbie's Guide To Bipolar Disorder; 10 Keys to Understanding Your Impairment
I was diagnosed nearly 20 years ago. Through years as a patient, a counselor, and podcast host I've seen several key themes emerge with people newly diagnosed with Bipolar Disorder.
This episode outlines the 10 keys to understanding Bipolar that I wish I had when I was first diagnosed.
Clearly, I deliver these topics with a casual hyperbole, and this is not a medical show. However, the points I make are heartfelt, and things I've experienced firsthand. I hope you or your friends and family might benefit from knowing some of these things upfront.
