    She doesn't mention any med's she might be on unless I missed that part. I'm on a cocktail of 4 meds two of which are cognitive inhibitors (side effect). Stifles my creativity completely. I'm mixed state ultra rapid cycling with borderline personality disorder and w/o meds and just therapy psychosis and hallucinations are right around the corner. I'm glad that how she copes gives her some peace but I can tell you that she is suffering much more than comes across. Her bravery and creativity and strength of character are jaw dropping to me and I think the world is a better place because of her music and the messages she sends with her lyrics. Wisdom in someone so young is a rare thing but she has it in droves. Peace out folks. There is love too in the world. Halsey sings it to us and I believe her.

    I actually feel like I have some sort of disorder like for example I could be having a good time with my friends one second and the next I'm out of it like I feel like I'm high. And sometimes when I'm asleep and someone tries talking to me I'll open my eyes and have a full conversation with them, but I'm actually still asleep and won't even remember having a conversation or anything.I've told my mom about it and asked if I could get check to see what's wrong with me but she just says that I'm fine and its normal to feel that way because I'm a teenager.I don't know what to do anymore because it just keeps getting worse and worse.

    I have bipolar disorder, too. It's a hard pill to swallow(No pun intended). I believe it can be a gift and a curse. I try to focus on the "gift" when I'm feeling depressed, but it's hard. Still, it is part of what helps me realize this depression will pass. I have mixed episodes and rapid cycling with my bipolar. It can get very tiring. Halsey is a musician I can relate to on a deeper level because of her bipolar. Like Halsey mentioned, I also feel more creative when I'm hypomanic, but then I burst with many ideas. I can't get anything accomplished as my mania level rises. I'm glad she did this video. We need more awareness.

    as a writer with severe obsessive compulsive disorder I've found a lot of comfort in this album and it reminded me a lot of the poetry I often come up with in my most dark phases. It's just so hard knowing that the mental place that gives me such beautiful art is the same place that gives me so much pain. I know I don't have the same mental illness as Halsey but I could find so many similarities in everything she's expressed around bipolar disorder and I'm so glad we have an artist that is talking about that struggle

    I do want you to learn more about what is going on with your brain, but please ask a professional before trying something. Pharmacists are great sources of info. They will know about any potential bad interactions if you take meds. If you want to start something new, get a green light from your doctor. Take notes so you can ask good questions and have answers for reference. You likely can improve what is happening, but seek good quality data.

    BDNF allows you to make 700 new brain cells/day. Inflammation in the brain in bipolar and other conditions blocks it, making you more prone to dementia later in life. Curcumin in turmeric, EGCG in green tea, acetyl L-carnitine, and exercise can help rescue that process. Your body is made of food. Diet plays a huge role in calming stormy seas, or churning already choppy waters. MSG is in food under over 20 names. It is an excitotoxin, bad for all brains. Keep it out of your diet.

    Thank you for this album. For everything honestly. I’ve gone through many mental health issues in my life and they’ve been hard every time. I’m also a dancer and I do make the best stuff when I’m in that state. I also work way too much and don’t like the person I become because I’m just...crazy. Crazier than the sun. Than life itself. So I get it. I get it more than you know. Just remember that it’s okay to be vulnerable. Just make sure you also get help doing so. And create a safe space for yourself.

    All disorders are caused by phenomena. If they resort to medicate, that is villainry because they don't know what is in what they administer. Consider everything provided to you is secretly flawed, extra fortified with whatever makes it either stuff that blocks circulation or is abrasive in your body.

  • Adrian Robertson

    Super awesome to see her speaking about bipolar so openly and raising awareness. I hope people also realize how dangerous manic episodes can be. I hope she's going to adjust her medication, because bipolar isn't something that you can just outgrow or fix with therapy. I think a lot of us don't really understand that these episodes put us at a risk to ourselves and others. You never really know when you are going to start feeling suicidal again or when a life event is going to throw you off. I just don't want to see her unintentionally sending a message that dealing with mania on a regular basis is even remotely safe. A lot of people have died that way. If anyone here knows anyone who seems to have big issues with manic behavior, please encourage them to get help. They might seem really high and happy, but they are actually extremely fragile and could easily explode. Not to mention the possible psychotic symptoms and impulsive behaviors. Gambling, hyper sexuality, grandiosity, flight of ideas, spending sprees, drug abuse.... These are things I've done while manic that i'm not proud of... But if someone would have reached out maybe i could've gotten help a bit sooner. Don't believe for a second that an unmedicated bipolar person can lead a stable life without medication management. It just doesn't work that way... Unless you live in a box. Sooner or later someone is bound to get hurt. Now that i've been medicated for 3 years, i've found it to be my best friend, because i no longer have to deal with the instability. Things are easier. Bipolar and schizophrenia are two of the most severe mental illnesses that can be easily cured with the proper meds. Don't let someone go unmedicated. And if you are bipolar and aren't medicated right now, i encourage you to think about the harm that could come to you or others around you during your episodes. Having severe high and low levels of energy is not good for you. Untreated bipolar brains experience early cell death during manic episodes. Too much excitement is very bad for the brain. Because Bipolar combines an impulse control problem with depressive tendencies, the risk for suicide is very high. Remember that these illnesses really can sneak up you.

    I’m Manic Bipolar and was diagnosed about a year ago. When I told my select family and friends they said “Ohhhh that makes so much sense”. Like bro wtf? And when I was trying to get pregnant and get off my meds to do it safely my therapist said “Are you sure you wanna have baby, it could come out like you, you know.” My GYN said the same thing to me like three times and refused to remove my IUD until she felt I was stable enough... the amount negativity towards Bipolar Disorder makes me just not tell anyone anymore.

    I was diagnosed with bipolar disorder whenever I was 13. At times, I didn't expect to live past 20 because of suicidal thoughts. My family was abusive and I didn't have any allies when it came to my bisexuality as a teen. But, I'm here to say that if you just KEEP GOING, everything will be okay if you're actually trying to better your life. I am now 21 with a family of my own. I have my own house, and I just want to see everyone be successful in life. Halsey, thank you so much for getting this message out. ILY
