Waking Up is a video series I started making years ago, about my recovery process from bipolar disorder. I haven’t finshed it yet, but it’s on my list.

Here’s Part 1, called The Light. It’s set to the music of Mannheim Steamroller.

**Please note, in the beginning of the video I wrote that “this is a video about how I recovered from bipolar disorder,” but really, I should have said this is a video about how I am recovering from bipolar disorder, because as we all know, recovery is a process, not an end point.

Seizure Warning: If you have epilepsy, there is a section at the very end of the video with flashing photos, which may trigger some people with epilepsy.
