    I have bipolar and Fibromyalgia. Everyday it's a upward battle when doing basic everyday things. Having a small physical or emotional trigger can cause episodes and having Bipolar disorder sometimes means you have to cancel last minute more. You have be on top of your symptoms 24/7. I also dont know if my feeling are really what I'm feeling or it's my body's reaction.

    You are so badass. I love everything you said regarding your album creation, how that aspect of you fuels creation, and brought you success. It wonderful to see manic energy showcased with an air appreciation that shows true understanding. I can relate to your statement of talking too loud, having a million ideas and not making them happen. I am excited to listen to your album with that new understanding of it. Thank you for being so authentic. Much love for you and your music!

    I'm so worried 'cause I identified myself so much with her but can't assume I have this without a diagnosis because I would be called hypochondriac by the people around me. I really feel I need help but it's hard to reach a free psychiatrist in my region...

    you get angry.. which is human emotion...everyone, youtube etc are like: youre bipolar and is a mental illness. NO it's not, anger is a human emotion. we are not robots. and i wont take medication for being angry once in a while! i dont go to extremes either all im saying they want to make you ill instead of promoting being happy. they try to find something wrong in you.

    as someone who was diagnosed with type i ( more severe, for anyone wondering / doesn’t know the terminology ) bipolar disorder and has been struggling since I was a kid, I appreciate you talking about mental health and spreading awareness. i was literally crying when I saw this come up, and i couldn’t be happier we’re getting more awareness!

    • Brianna Ledsome
      Brianna Ledsome

      “More severe” isn’t really healthy terminology for the distinction between Bipolar I and II, it’s a difference in the experiences of mania. Not a critique, just trying to help with the understanding and de stigmatizing of both I and II.

    Halsey I hope this video gets so many views and many likes in the UZsoft community because Mental Illness unfortunately remains a stigma and there’s a lot of young and young-adults who doesn’t even know mental illness exist or don’t get the information handed to them. Also, not all people we look up to talk about mental illnesses. I feel like the information gets to you when you crossed videos like this, through the people you follow and admire. Influencers, artists, tv shows etc.. That’s how I knew I wanted to diagnose myself because us HUMANS IN TOTALITY are ignorant to this or think that is just us “feeling some type of way” and we’re not able to recognizing something might be wrong up there in our brains. I applaud you and adore you for this ❤️

    Thank you for this video. We don’t hear much about bipolar in the media and this is such a great video to introduce people to the topic. I think one of the worst parts of getting the diagnosis, even if you’re relieved at first that you’re not just flawed and crazy, then you come to the realization that there’s not definite “fix” or “cure”. That is something you have to deal with. And it’s scary to think that people who you’ll meet in a stable or manic state of mind, will reject you when you’re in the depressed period. How much people had I lost because of that. And then looking back and seeing your manic self as something embarrassing. Why I appreciate the most is when Halsey says she finally accepted that part of herself. I want to accept that part of myself too and will constantly work for it, because if I don’t accept me, with my depression and mania, then I can’t expect others to do so.

    WOW! That was awesome😍 I really like getting to know peoples feelings and struggles and trying to accept them and also help .Sometimes we judge someone without noticing that we’re doing it so we have to remind ourselves that everyone’s trying to find ways ,by their everyday life and personality, to fit in this world. All it takes is understanding and acceptance.

    I still feel like a few key aspects of bipolar disorder weren’t touched on here which is totally understandable, you can’t fit everything into one interview ! But there’s a few things I’d like add - Severe type 1 Bipolar can become so debilitating that people are rarely ever functional and spend the majority of their life in care and have few moments where they appear ‘normal’. I don’t know Halsey personally and I’m not trying to invalidate her struggles but what she’s describing here is actually quite a mild form of the disease. Many people with Bipolar disorder have their lives devastated by the disease and the sedation caused by medications that are vital to control severe forms of the disease can completely strip someone of their identity , however this is necessary because the devastation caused by psychosis and severe mania is constantly life threatening and or ruining. People can develop full blown psychosis where they convince themselves they’re capable of flying so they jump off skyscrapers, or hear the devil tell them to kill themselves etc. The fact that Halsey has said she is able to manage without medication indicates an extremely mild form of the condition, because if someone with Severe type 1 bipolar went unmedicated they would likely end up dead, hospitalised or completely ruined their life. The fact that Halsey manages to find anything positive from her mania is also a rarity , I’m glad she’s able to do it! But for the majority of people with bipolar disorder there’s is no romantic silver lining , most of the time it’s just uncontrollable devastation. I’m really glad someone with such a large platform is speaking out about the disorder because it’s EXTREMELY misunderstood and often just thrown around as an adjective or insult when it’s actually a life threatening condition just like cancer.

    In my school where I work, many students have autism, ADHD but most of the parents, don't want to accept their child have that some kind of mental illness, on the other hand, I have met some amazing parents who accept their kids have mental issues and deal with it, consult to experts and moreover they have unconditional love for their kids. I have grown a lot as a person being around with my students.

    “how do i know what i’m allowed to feel?” exactly. the fact that we call it a disorder makes me question if my emotions are normal or not. it constantly makes me question that is it abnormal if i feel so intensly? is it that abnormal if i have so many ideas that we call it maniac? is it abnormal to let yourself live the pain and is having pain actually normal? i have so many questions but i always end up thinking i’d rather have alternating moods than just have the same mood forever.😀 (i’m not american,so i might suck at grammar😁)

    For those of you that know or suspect you may experience bipolar disorder as well, two books that have been massively helpful to me are: "Touched with Fire: Manic-Depressive Illness and the Artistic Temperament", and, "An Unquiet Mind: A Memoir of Moods and Madness", ...both of which were written by Kay Redfield Jamison, who is a Psychiatrist with bipolar disorder. Touched with Fire is more specifically geared toward people who experience bipolar disorder and also practice some sort of artistry, because she traces links between mood disorders and professional success in the arts, as well as analyzing how those individuals proactively managed their mood changes to navigate their careers and lives. An Unquiet Mind is more generally geared toward describing her own personal experiences and her understanding of the disorder. Be safe

    I used to have friends who told me I was crazy or too much to handle as a result of my bipolar disorder, I have a new group of friends now and the other day I told my friends about my bipolar disorder and they said I was perfect no matter what and that they'd always be there for me to help me and honestly surrounding yourself with people who genuinely care for you and understand is the most important thing ever.

    I’ve loved Halsey for so many years and to have her speak about bipolar truly touches my heart. My mom was diagnosed with bipolar when she was 18, she’s 51 now and my life has been molded around her illness and the way she’s chosen to live her life. It’s been such a roller coaster of goods and bads with my mom, I’m so proud to have one of my favorite artists advocate for this mental illness.
