Somewhere, Tennessee
The bipolar disorder diagnosis at the age of 23 was a relief to know I was not simply a bad person and there was a reason for the way I have felt. Yet I have been struggling to cope and understand this disorder... what does it mean? How do the brain imbalances affect my behavior and moods? Why do I rapid cycle? Why do I get obsessive thoughts? Is there a link between mania and memory? Is there...

Brazil
In 1996 I had an experience normally called "mania" by most psychiatrists. At its peak, I was in such a state of ectasy that I thought I had died. The episode ended with me being handcuffed by two police officers and taken to Psychiatric Emergency because I had refused the officer's request to put my clothes back on, in the ballroom of a Toronto Hotel. At the hospital, I could see...

Karen Bastille Health Maven

Ellington, Connecticut
I am a 55 year old woman living a life that includes COPD / emphysema. While my diagnosis four years ago did change some things about me - I retired from teaching to avoid colds and flu, for example - it did not change who I am. I am an active, productive and happy woman - I write, I engage in several (too many?) hobbies, I care for my granddaughter while her mother works. I believe in the title...

Patty B.

Granbury, Texas
I lost a kidney and have just recently found a path to take because a Doctor took the time to listen and realized I was not a hypochondriac or a big overly sensitive, stressed, depressed woman. (yes, lots of justified sarcasm). I was athletic, very lean and continued to stay fit by enjoying bike rides and playing recreational co-ed softball. However, when I started a family at 25, I had...

In early 2005, I was 28 years old and just beginning to break into a career as an opera singer. I had received contracts for three main stage productions, a culmination of ten years of work toward my goal of making opera my life's work. I was at a turning point; these performances could make or break my budding career. One morning in March of that year, I woke, stood up, and passed out,...

I was born on August 8th 1991. Two or more weeks premature. I spent the first three and a half years of my life in a Romanian orphanage, on the third year one of the caretakers attempted to kill me by throwing me down the stairs for complaining that she was stealing food.

I was diagnosed with Celiac Sprue after a several years of extreme illnesses, exhaustion, unexplained tummy issues, “ulcers”, etc through a biopsy. I will never forget standing in my wedding gown for the last fitting, answering the phone and hearing the diagnosis. I was a bit… well.. gobsmacked, to say the least. The doctor stated the mystery disease and told me that I could...
