The Bipolar Side of Me - PART 2 - June 10th 2019

On this week’s INDOUBT podcast episode, Julie Kraft shares further about her personal journey surrounding mental health. Julie tells about what it meant for her to share her story publicly on social media. The stigma that surrounds bipolar disorder, and mental illness in general, forced her to keep her diagnosis in the shadows for so long, wondering what those around her would think and the judgement that would come with each person that she told. Julie encourages each of us to open up and let God use our story, even when it hurts because even when it doesn’t make sense, he still has control of our lives.

She explains what it is, what it means for her and what her life looks like now versus then. Julie also offers advice on how we can be respectful in helping those who might be struggling with mental illness. She learned the name bipolar gave her a reason for certain behaviours and tendencies but, not an excuse. Julie is an example for us all on how we can learn how to live our lives to glorify God, bipolar II disorder or not.
