In this mini-episode, Kimi and Christy talk about Kimi’s experience interviewing Sheila Hamilton about her late husband David who had a diagnosis of bipolar, a diagnosis Kimi shares. Christy asks the question: why is Kimi “triggered” every time bipolar disorder comes up? The very important punchline is that Kimi is not Carrie from Homeland and she cannot control the narrative around bipolar or how people experience her. Instead, she can (and will) continue to talk about living with bipolar with openness and honesty because that is her truth. It’s liberating! They also share some simple strategies to use when you experience internal or external triggers. Breathe deep and take good care.
