I’m a 31 year old PhD student in anthropology, and I was diagnosed in the past year with schizoaffective disorder, bipolar type. I live with my fiancee and two cats in the American midwest.
Because I worry about the stigma I may face should I reveal my name and more specific details about my identity, I’ll be going by J.A. for now. Hopefully I’ll have the chance to address coming out as bipolar in a future blog post.
