My Bipolar Journey
Sue Ryerson

Having bipolar is an ongoing discovery process.

I’m Sue. I have bipolar disorder. And this is my story. Living well with bipolar is about learning what works and what doesn’t. You’ve got to really understand yourself, and it’s an ongoing discovery process. I even find myself going back in time to piece the various parts of my journey together. You can actually trace the signs and symptoms of bipolar back to my childhood. Here’s a photo of me with my brother and sister. (I’m the terribly cute one in the middle.) To put it gently, I was a handful growing up. I mean, my mom will tell you I just had this overabundance of energy. I played sports and had tons of friends, and she still couldn’t find enough things for me to do! I was decidedly more hyperactive than my peers, and even I was able to notice it.
