Episode 12 HYPOMANIA: problems & pitfalls

this is bipolar

Health & Fitness

In this episode, mental health advocates Shaley Hoogendoorn and Julie Kraft discuss hypomania. For them, hypomania has two sides- the bright but also the dark. In this follow-up to episode 11, they share what it feels like in their minds and bodies when the destructive side of hypomania rears its head. What are the problems & pitfalls? In what ways are their lives, and the lives of those around them, affected the most? Listen in as Shaley and Julie also share about how they spot warning signs and now manage the messy parts of hypomania. It is their greatest hope that this episode gives a real-life glimpse into the rocky side of the rollercoaster that is hypomania. This is bipolar...



*Note: Hypomania is a lesser form of mania and a symptom of Bipolar 2 Disorder. Neither Julie nor Shaley have had a full-blown manic episode and cannot speak to that experience. Mania and Hypomania have a shadow side and in no way do they want to glorify it. Please know that we take hypomania very seriously and are committed to their treatment plans, which for them includes medication.
