14. That's Not Me, That's Bipolar Disorder Distressed to Joyful; Bailey's Way

Also found on SpotifyApple Podcasts and Stitcher.

Tune into this episode to learn about the “less popularly known” symptoms of bipolar disorder that many of those diagnosed deal with on a regular basis. I talk about my own experiences with them, plus I’ll explain how what I learned from an article [linked below] combined with changing a few of my behaviors has really strengthened my relationship with my life partner, Monish.

My ultimate wish in regards to this episode is to bring relief and hope to all those who tune in.


  • Here is the beautiful article written by Julie A Fast about the “mean and nasty” moods as well as other less-commonly-known symptoms associated with bipolar disorder.
  • I created a coloring page that you can purchase for $2 in my Etsy Shop (scroll to see photo at the bottom of this webpage) which reads, “That’s Not Me, That’s Bipolar Disorder” that you can print as many copies as you’d like and fill with beautiful color to hang around your own home. Check out this Instagram post to get a better visual as to why I have these posters hanging around my home.
