My name is Anna. I was diagnosed with Anxiety when I was 13 years old. When I was 15 I started to experience issues with my mood, I attributed this to all the usual things that you experience at 15, friendship troubles, hormones and school.
I was diagnosed with depression, put into therapy and I accepted that, I hadn't noticed that when I wasn't in a period of depression, my mood wasn't stable but in fact verging on manic, I believed that was who I was.
At 16 I developed an eating disorder, this, although at the time I was not aware of it this was a misguided effort to control my moods. In September 2018 I started recovery and my mood symptoms have returned. In June this year I was diagnosed with Bipolar II disorder.
Over the years (In what I now can understand where Hypomanic Episodes) I have started many blogs, however, I feel that I can actually help people, simply by sharing my real life experiences, tips and show people both the good and bad parts of my life.
I believe that everything can be turned good, and this is what I am trying to do.
