about the AUTHOR

I am a young adult living with a primary diagnosis of Bipolar Disorder {Type I}, while additionally suffering from Obsessive Compulsive Disorder {OCD} and general anxiety. I was diagnosed with OCD and anxiety first, at the age of 17 and then with Bipolar Disorder at the age of 19. The diagnosis of OCD and anxiety came during my Senior year of High School. I began to have seizures later discovered to be caused by an extreme amount of stress, due to living with undiagnosed anxiety and OCD. These seizures were labeled non-epileptic seizures, more commonly known as pseudoseizures. My diagnosis of Bipolar Disorder came, as I said, later at 19. I was diagnosed after attempting suicide and the diagnosis came at a time in my life when almost nothing was left. I have since slowely put my life back together.
