About Living With Bipolar Disorder

Hello! My name is Christine Donohue. I've been diagnosed with bipolar disorder for the past two decades. There are over 60 million of us affected by bipolar disorder worldwide.


When you're struggling to keep going, hearing from others who have gone through it can make the difference. Maybe no one else has put your sadness, pain, frustration, and joy into meaningful words.


Welcome to the Living With Bipolar Disorder website. This is the place to share your experience, learn from the experiences of others, and find support.


This website is an accepting environment for you and your family to share your stories. By sharing our stories, we lessen stigma and move forward with optimism.


Please join us and share your story as a Living With Bipolar Disorder Community member.
