Hi everyone - I'm new here. I was diagnosed with bipolar at age 12 (more than 15 years ago) and had been managing really well for the past six or seven years until the pandemic started. I've felt closer to breaking more over the past 18 months than anytime since I was a teenager. I'm also a teacher, and I barely made it through last year. I'm extremely anxious about this year. I was grateful to read about others people's similar experiences here, in terms of facing some of the challenges that my friends don't understand. Thanks for posting, everyone. I'm looking forward to being here more regularly.
