My name is Sarah.
My Story: I was diagnosed with bipolar disorder in 2005, after a serious manic episode.
My uncontrolled recklessness, anger and impulsiveness - classic bipolar symptoms - caused me to take a wrecking ball to my own life.
You can read my story in About Me.
As so often happens, the mania was followed by a prolonged clinical depression where I became suicidal.
Remember, this illness was originally known as MANIC DEPRESSION for a reason!
Since my diagnosis I have discovered that bipolar disorder is a treatable condition, and my life is back on track, and full of peace and wonder again.

Sometimes our lives turn on a dime.
A chance remark to my psychiatrist about a recent manic spending spree led to my proper diagnosis with manic depressive illness.
I was being treated for anxiety and depression - with terrible results - and that one comment revealed my the missing piece of the diagnostic puzzle - mania - and saved my life.
If I had just honestly responded to some basic questions in a simple bipolar test I could have turned things around many, many years sooner.
Don't waste time. Don't make my mistakes.
