English spoken - In this episode of the Leiden Psychology Podcast we talk with Justin, who was diagnosed with Bipolar Disorder type 1 over 14 years ago. Justin is very candid and talks about his first manic episode at the age of 28, and how he learned to live a stable life. Justin is doing well, and he owes this in particular to his own perseverance. What do you experience during a manic episode? How is it possible that Justin has been off medication for almost seven years and is still stable? What is it like to live with Bipolar Disorder type 1? Listen and discover the world of Leiden Psychology!
