My name is Xanthe Wyse. Diagnosed bipolar 1 disorder, post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD).
Mood currently elevated. I think somewhere between hypomania and mania currently. Lots of energy late at night despite doing calming activities like bath. I felt like dancing to discharge some of the energy and felt euphoric in this video. Improvised dance.
Then had a bit of a vent (with some irritability). Mainly about social media trolls who accuse me of being ‘ableist’ because I don’t agree with their opinions. Appreciate kind and supportive comments.
Got triggered into a surge of hyperarousal energy earlier today. Challenging time of year for me. My mood tends to go elevated with stress. I swear more when venting when my mood elevated. I still stay relatively calm emotionally though. Just feel ‘energy’ instead.
Not wearing any makeup in this video. The glow in my skin is partly my bright T-shirt combined with my mood.
