Hi! Welcome to my world.

Dancing with bipolar is a Mental Health, Christianity, and Lifestyle blog.

All the opinions expressed here-in are my own, based on personal experiences or research, except where stated otherwise. While I intend to provide nothing but accurate information, consider your doctor’s advice superior to the info here in on managing your disease.

Bipolar is a chronic disease that lacks a definitive cure but it can be easily managed with the right medication and psychosocial environment. Information is key, both for the patient and those around them to help them live a full life, at their optimum health. This blog is my attempt to provide my experience on the condition, hopefully to also show that it is possible to live a full life while still battling bipolar. I’m doing this both for the sake of my sanity, and your knowledge.

Be kind as you proceed, and I hope herein you find a hope for a life filled with joy if you like me, are bipolar, or have an affected loved one.

Love, Danielle.
