General Information Only

This blog is for general information only.

I’m not a mental health professional nor am I a doctor. I’m someone who has struggled with Bipolar II Disorder probably since his teens. A diagnosis of Major Depressive Disorder was made in 2015 and it was changed to Bipolar II Disorder in 2019 based upon events that occurred in 2018. My illness went undiagnosed and untreated for 40 plus years.

This blog doesn’t provide medical advice. It doesn’t give a diagnosis. While treatments may be discussed, it isn’t a treatment service.

I stress that the information provided isn’t a substitute for medical or professional care. You shouldn’t use the information in place of

  • a visit;
  • a call consultation;
  • and the advice,

of your doctor or mental health professional. Don’t disregard medical advice, or delay seeking it, because of something you read on this blog. Similarly, don’t rely on the information I share in place of seeking medical advice.

What I share is my experience only. Your experience likely differs so your treatment plan will likely differ as well.

If you have any questions about anything on this blog, I urge you to talk to your doctor or mental health professional.

Similarly, if you require the help of a mental health professional, contact your doctor immediately or go to your nearest hospital or walk-in clinic. IF YOU HAVE SUICIDAL THOUGHTS, PLEASE CALL 9-1-1 IMMEDIATELY AND SEEK THE HELP YOU ARE SO DESERVING OF. You’re more worthy than you appreciate and you deserve the opportunity to heal.

Again, this blog is for general information only.
