My name is June. I’m 31 years old and I have bipolar disorder. I’m a proud United States Army veteran having served almost 8 years. I’m happily married to the love of my life, Paul. No kids, but we have a husky who is 11 1/2 years old named Iris and a beagle/yellow lab mix named Lily who looks like a little sausage pup. A kitten, named Meep joined our family on Christmas Eve for my 30th birthday present. My husband spoils me, what can I say? He’s my rock and I don’t know where I’d be without him beside me on our journey. I say “our” because he is by my side through it all. Bipolar disorder is a daily struggle. I want to help end the stigma of what people think bipolar disorder is. It should be ok to say, hey, I have bipolar disorder.
If I rambled it’s because that’s how my thoughts go. They race and change from topic to topic…so bare with me if you continue.
