Thanks Yvette for passing the opportunity to interview Natasha Tracy my way. I’ve always liked her straightforwardness and it shows up in this Q&A too. (Also fortunately it was done before I got sick and my brain was functioning lol.)
Thanks lots for reading it.
Interview by the Blahpolar
*passes Natasha a glass of water*
- How would you describe yourself, if you weren’t allowed to mention bipolar?
I would describe myself as a writer, speaker and social media consultant. I would also say I’m an ex-skydiver, techie geek and avid cook.
- What is your full diagnosis?
My diagnosis is bipolar type II but if I were to be a bit more accurate I would say bipolar type II ultradian with generalized anxiety
- When were you diagnosed?
I was diagnosed, initially, when I was 20 years old, but I was diagnosed, incorrectly, with minor depression. At the time, I knew the psychiatrist was wrong for two reasons. One, I had done a lot of research on bipolar disorder and was pretty sure that was the diagnosis; and two, I knew there was nothing “minor” about my depression considering I was acutely suicidal at the time.
