I was originally in the mental facility for suicide watch. I saw the doctor the first day. I explained what was going on and she started treating me for bipolar disorder. I stayed a week in that place. The people I met along the way helped shaped me into the person I’ve grown into. I learned how to live life with bipolar disorder and to be honest I’m still learning. I have the best support system and that makes each day easier. I was diagnosed just over a year ago. I still make mistakes but I learn from them every day.
