    Newbie's Guide To Bipolar Disorder; 10 Keys to Understanding Your Impairment

    Newbie's Guide To Bipolar Disorder; 10 Keys to Understanding Your Impairment

    I was diagnosed nearly 20 years ago. Through years as a patient, a counselor, and podcast host I've seen several key themes emerge with people newly diagnosed with Bipolar Disorder.
    This episode outlines the 10 keys to understanding Bipolar that I wish I had when I was first diagnosed.
    Clearly, I deliver these topics with a casual hyperbole, and this is not a medical show. However, the points I make are heartfelt, and things I've experienced firsthand. I hope you or your friends and family might benefit from knowing some of these things upfront.

Helpful

I was diagnosed bipolar type 2 7 months ago. I love listening to you guys. There’s tons of helpful info and also it’s nice to hear someone else’s journey and how you relate with them. Thank you guys! Keep going!

Unmediated even though is says he should be

Listening to Johnny is confusing he jumps around topic to topic and makes little sense .... his unwelcoming demeanor has made this once enjoyable show actually sound like a cry for help. This is why we need health care, so people like this “host” can get the help they truly need.

Don’t put yourself in a place to help people if you are in a place where you cannot even help your self. Don’t be proud to be pharmaceutical free when you desperately need them. No shame in the medicine game take it if you need it. Stability is what’s important. Not cutting down a fellow human simply because they get offers to assist when you do not.

I recommend mindful bipolar, bipolar family, or that b ward. Educated “Suffers”- and they want to help! This isn't out of spite, I quit the show because it wasn’t heathy to work with someone unstable, I want to work with someone whose motivated to take control over their lives and stand up and say “I will help you!”, when A lister is in need. Someone not afraid to answer a crying mothers phone call begging for insight of this disorder. Simply put, this is no longer a place for help and healed.

Very new listener

Just recently decided to dive into finding podcasts I could relate to and this has been super beneficial in helping me feel like I’m not alone in the many layers of how I feel on the daily!
