Hi my name is Soph,
im a young adult who has been diagnosed with bipolar disorder 4 years ago.
i can still live a normal functional life. I have been on and off medication and believe that it is possible to learn your triggers and medicate accordingly.
i am still learning about my mental disorder and how to live with it. I have had highs and lows, I have experienced mania, depression, however I have never been suicidal.
i have lost a close friend to suicide and have had dealt with bipolar and depression within my immediate family.
I would love to be able to help people deal with grief, learning to live peacefully with their mental disorders and assist them with feeling like they are not alone or different but unique and able to achieve their dreams.
i have always loved people and talking so I hope being apart of the beyond blue community I can truly give something back to the people who need it.
thanks for listening
