"Finding out I was bipolar was both a blessing and a curse. I now have a reason as to why I feel and think the way I do. Even though I can't always control these behaviors, I feel a little less unnerved because I at least know there is an explanation behind it all.
I thought for a small while that my scattered, untamed creativity or my occasional over-confidence and self-love were just symptoms of my condition. However, as I get to know myself more everyday, I've realized a few important things. Bipolar disorder brings out both the best and very worst in me.
Despite how low I feel sometimes, I wouldn't change it because if I'm lucky, it takes me just as high. It's a part of who I am, but it's not something that defines me. I may be afraid of what I can't control, but I am still here working through it."
