Hello, I’m Adriane, I have been diagnosed with bipolar and pmdd. I have been battling mental illness for a large portion of my life. Two years ago my life was rocked when my brother died by suicide at the age of 25. I live with this disease daily. I have my struggles, yet I’m still here. Life isn’t easy with dealing with a mental illness. I am currently working on a book and writing about my struggles and the journey that life has taken me on. I’m hoping someone reading my story doesn’t give up. I meditate everyday. I am always striving to live as healthy as possible. I know that there can be life after being diagnosed.
