In this episode, I discuss what it feels like in the midst of a bipolar 2 hypomanic episode.

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 in as I discuss a difficult book that I’ve been reading about trauma and how I’ve been able to continue to do so without becoming triggered.

This is NOT a book review episode and WARNING: it may be triggering to some.
