My name is Alex, I’m in my late 20s, and I was diagnosed with bipolar disorder in 2020 after suffering through many episodes and two suicide attempts undiagnosed, unmedicated, and dismissed by the mental healthcare system.

I have always found it helpful in many ways to read about other people’s experiences, so I wanted to share my own as well.

I titled this blog Not Just Bipolar because I might write about other topics, but also as a reminder (to myself and to others) that even if I primarily write about living with bipolar, there’s more to me and my life than that.
