My interview with ABC-7 was a success. Thank you to all whom wachted it, and if you missed it click here to watch. Bipolar and depression effect thousands of people across the country. Most signs go unnoticed by family members and friends making it hard to tell if your loved one is suffering from either of these life altering diseases.
