Thank you, Glenna. I’m glad you found it relatable. For me, realizing that depression/hypomania aren’t options but ways of life for me helped me make the transition from trying to “beat” them to finding ways to manage the experiences. It’s an important shift in mindset, and I’m thrilled that I’m seeing results from it.
