Sisters in Mental Illness: Mania and Misconceptions

This month the tables turn—it’s Shaley’s turn to be interviewed. Nichole Forbes chats with Shaley about what it’s like to live with bipolar 2 and hypomania. What are the common misconceptions of bipolar and hypomania? How is self-care different when you’re diagnosed with those disorders? How do you move forward when you’re neuro-atypical?

Sisters in Mental Illness is a vlog series where Shaley Hoogendoorn has real conversations with brave SheLovelys who are willing to share their experience living with a mental illness. We live in a time where one in four people struggle with a mental health disorder, so these conversations are very important. We will share ALL the stories—stories of sadness, madness, shame and struggle. The more we talk about hard things like mental health, the better we can understand and walk with and alongside our Sisters in Mental Illness. We can remind each other that our stories are not over yet. Together we can smash the stigma and stereotypes of mental illness, ONE story at a time.
