“As a magazine writer, Iâ€™m always looking for other peopleâ€™s stories and trying to talk to people about what their lives are like. I always knew that that came from a place from having some pretty crazy experiences as somebody whoâ€™s bipolar and that I had all these stories that seemed outlandish and bananas, and that maybe I had to start with my own story.
