CompassionateLove Radio- Bipolar Disorder, Justin’s Story Part 1

CompassionateLove Radio: Combatting Stigma with Stories 

(c)2016  Nancy Virden, Always the Fight Ministry

justin-3Show #7   Bipolar Disorder/Anxiety -Part One

Running nonstop in sandals, circling the block for hours and feeling no pain, Justin was in full-blown manic state. He scared his friends by not eating or sleeping, and by losing 29 pounds in only three weeks. He was “amped” in his own words, and consequences were harsh.

Diagnosed with Bipolar Disorder at the age of fifteen, Justin slowly came to grips with his responsibility to manage his disease. Now married and steadily working, he enjoys life and is deeply grateful for those who have invested in his wellbeing.

Listen as Justin shares his heart over 2 consecutive CompassionateLove Radio shows. His is a tumultuous, scary, honest, hopeful, and touching story of living with Bipolar Disorder I.  Part One will be available on Wednesday, October 5, 2016
