I’ve heard of bipolar disorder, but what exactly is it? And how does it affect people? Join host, Bailey Reber, as she breaks down the details of bipolar disorder while encouraging those who are considering seeking help to do so. Learn what type of bipolar disorder Bailey was diagnosed with and options for success when choosing a psychiatrist for the first time.
In this episode, Bailey discusses the connection between bipolar disorder and sensory overload (also known as hypersensitivity). She takes time to discuss research that she’s done on this topic and how it relates to personal life experiences that she’s undergone. Sensory overload affects many different types of people with mental diagnoses, more than just those with bipolar disorder. Bailey hopes that you’ll leave this episode with a better understanding and more empathy for those in the world around you.
In this episode, I discuss what it feels like in the midst of a bipolar 2 hypomanic episode. These hypomanic episodes are generally very specific to bipolar 2 disorder and therefore can be very confusing to those without this diagnosis. I truly hope to help those listening who have bipolar 2 disorder to feel less alone while tuning in. At the same time, I hope to leave those of you who do NOT have bipolar disorder feeling full of new information and insight on what their friends/loved ones may be going through.
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. Bailey talks about her own experiences with them, plus she’ll explain how what she learned in an article combined with changing a few of her behaviors has really strengthened her relationship with my life partner, Monish.
