Confession: "I am living with bipolar disorder"

Updated: Nov 13, 2020

Degreed, financially secure, enjoying life, and an all around joyous Black woman is not the typical image that comes to mind when you think of a person living with bipolar disorder. The first images are typically that of a person who's life has spiraled out of control or a family member who has been deemed as the hurtful term "crazy." Because of this, I hope this week's confession from Nieisha Deed, mental health advocate and founder of Pure Spark, will provide some insight into the world of living with bipolar disorder.
