This one is near and dear to my heart. For years, I lived in fear of anyone finding out my husband had Bipolar Disorder. It was the loneliest time of my life. I never want anyone else to have to travel that road alone. This is why Sarah and I do what we do, we talk about the things no one talks about to try to remove the stigma.

We bring Dr. Stewart back for our 2nd installment of "The Unqualified Meet the Qualified." Did you ever wonder what the difference is between Bipolar 1 and Bipolar 2? How can we help and support those living with Bipolar Disorder or Schizophrenia? How can we have more empathy toward family and friends dealing with these illnesses? Do you know what words are offensive to throw around when not used in the proper way (hint: manic, bipolar, psychotic)?  Once again, Dr. Stewart busts out her copy of the DSM to share with us the facts. She clears up myths and explains each of these illnesses in depth.

We hope you take away some new knowledge and understanding of these two complicated illnesses.
