Welcome to another post on celebrities living with bipolar disorder. As I’m doing more research on bipolar, I’m finding a lot more information on famous people living with bipolar. Some celebrities are recently diagnosed while others have been living with it for several years. But, even though bipolar has been a struggle for them throughout their lives, it’s amazing how they have continued to push forward and follow their passion. Some make me proud because they use their star power to increase bipolar awareness. For example, Demi Lovato and Catherine Zeta-Jones both have talked openly about their diagnosis and what they plan on doing. They are both an advocate for bipolar awareness.
Today, we’ll be exploring Sinead O’Connor and her recent diagnosis of bipolar disorder. She was misdiagnosed for 13 years as having borderline personality disorder. She wrote on her Facebook wall – “Am celebrating having finally received an accurate diagnosis.”
