Hey a commentary on Bipolar I can actually relate with! Happy to find your Substack bud.

Personally I believe I'm in "the purgatory" now. On the up and up during the day while taking my medication before bed, getting a solid 7-8 hours of sleep most nights. Coming out of my depression around January I can say that I've been waking up happy for the past few months... Now is that a good thing? Time will tell.

The question I want to pose to the void is: Where does my Bipolar (1) end and my personality begin?

I've written much of my story from the past decade of ups and downs and look forward to publishing here. So far I'm a bit over 3 years clean of any MANIC symptoms, so I call myself an Ex-Bipolar. From what I've found there are very few of us out here who have come out the other side of this thing. Congrats, and thank you for sharing. -XB
