Thank you. The most amazing gift I’ve received from Bipolar Disorder II is the ability to write about it and share my story. Even during the times when the depression lasts for months.

If you haven’t read the story I included I hope you will. I submit to Invisible Illness regularly and I feel this is the best story I’ve written yet, or it’s my favorite one. It felt good to write it.
