One day I will be brave enough to reveal my true identity. For now I remain The Bipolar Doc.
Although I have only recently been diagnosed with bipolar II disorder, I have battled with my mental health since I was a teenager. Throughout my training I have felt the need to hide my difficulties. The idea behind this blog is primarily to reach out to other medical professionals who may be battling mental health problems themselves. If one person feels less lonely as a result of reading it, then it has achieved its goal.
