    was diagnosed with bipolar type II disorder and C PTSD in 2004 at age 38 after decades of confusion and pain In the past decade she has studied the two disorders worked in peer support and sought a path to her own wellness Today Beth works as a freelance writer and artist She became a contributing editor featured columnist for BP Magazine in 2007 and blogger for bpHope in 2011 Beth holds a B A from Colorado College and M F A from University of Denver Beth s primary area of interest is the relationship between bipolar and PTSD She is currently working on a memoir and building a body of artwork focusing on her recovery Check out Beth s blog at http www bessiebandaidrinkiewater wordpress com 1 COMMENT PB February 12 2016 Reply Bipolar should not frighten anyone There are professional Doctors and nurses ready to help you Bipolar can be bad when you are going through an uncontrolled phase high or depressed but always remember the drugs Doctors give you are to help you get better I was diagnosed in my early 20 s and have been admitted into hospital six times Usually you attend hospital once or twice to get the condition in control It can be scary at first but always remember the staff are there to help you But never ever forget you can always ask for a second opinion if you are not happy The admissions to hospital have taken about 4 6 months from my life but they have given me all the rest of the time a quite normal existence I am one of those bipolar people who count myself lucky to have experienced the thoughts that have come with the highs Those highs which so many people seems scared about are in fact incredibly enlightening and you can feel as though you are walking in the presence of God if that s at all possible You can feel delights no ordinary individual will ever recognise or ever feel how sad I think So bipolar makes good people that s a fact You may be fragile and even depressed at times but you an important individual who deserves care just like anyone else never forget this If you ever feel let down by the system ask for a second opinion your doctor or health team wont mind they are all professionals If you ever feel angry or upset discuss this with your health team immediately it may be that your drug dose has weakened or strengthened and needs slight adjustment it s best to be safe than sorry And never stop the med s without professional evaluation If you are like me and think you have been made a better person by this illness please do get in contact for it s great to share points of view Good luck to everyone in the future and remember you have been given a rather special insight to life and a very unusual gift
