Breaking The Silence of Stigma: Mrs. Bipolarity

Mrs Bipolarity:

If you don’t know me well enough by now (or you’re just getting to know me) here’s your chance to delve into my bipolarity even more. The amazing blogger over at Bipolar for Life interviewed me for her weekly Breaking the Silence of Stigma series. She’s become a blogging friend and an excellent supporter of Mrs Bipolarity. I’d love for you to check it out!

After a long hiatus, our weekly Wednesday interviews are back!

Today’s edition of Breaking The Silence of Stigma features Laura SQ, also known as Mrs. Bipolarity.  Laura is a passionate campaigner against the stigma attached to mental illness.  She’s an active Mental Health blogger, a mom, and a driving force in the anti-stigma campaign, Faces of Mental Illness.  For more information and to participate in the campaign, please feel free to contact Laura SQ or myself.

So without further ado, let’s launch into our interview:

BSS: How long have you known that you are living with a mental illness?

LSQ: I’ve been dealing with it for about fifteen years.  However, I was diagnosed with bipolar disorder in 2002, when I was nineteen years old, just a few months before my twentieth birthday.  Looking back, I was REALLY struggling, starting about the age of sixteen-ish or seventeen years old though.
