Even before I had a label for my mental illness, I was fascinated with the medical field. I read psychiatric journals for fun, and memorized Latin language roots in my spare time. I even worked as a certified nurses’ assistant on my way to a nursing degree–work which was interrupted by my first pregnancy.
Shortly after the birth of my son, I was diagnosed with Bipolar I with mixed episodes and psychotic features. Afterwards, I threw myself into research, trying to manage my dramatically-increased symptoms. I have met with two different therapists over five years, switched psychiatrists six times, and consulted with nutritionists.
However, I am not an expert on anyone’s health but my own. As such, I am unqualified to offer medical advice or professional opinions as a:
- lactation consultant
- personal trainer
- nurse practitioner
