OMG Thats Me!: Bipolar Disorder, Depression, Anxiety, Panic Attacks, and More. by Dave Mowry

What started out as a couple of blog posts blossomed into a following of over 200,000 people—who have all read and been touched by Mowry’s stories. The most extraordinary thing he found when writing about his experiences is that the most common comment about his work is “OMG that’s me. You are telling my story. I don’t feel so alone now.”

Living with mental illness is hard, but it’s especially difficult when dealing with more than one condition at the same time. Many books about coping with mental illness focus on one disorder, such as anxiety, panic attacks, or depression. Because Dave Mowry didn’t see any that dealt with his situation of living with multiple disorders simultaneously, he decided to write about it himself.

OMG That’s Me! is sometimes funny, often poignant, but always deeply honest, open, and personal. Mowrys stories let others know there is help and there is hope, and that they too can recover and live a full life. This book is a must read for family members and friends who will gain true insight into the experiences of loved ones living with a mental illness. This book is a must read for mental health professionals who will better understand the symptoms faced by their patients. And ordinary people will see the strength, resilience, and beauty of people that will shatter the stigma surrounding mental illness.

Can You Have Bipolar Disorder and an Anxiety Disorder at the Same Time?

There are basically two ways you can have anxiety with bipolar disorder. First, it can be a symptom of the bipolar disorder itself. Secondly, you can have a separate anxiety condition in addition to bipolar disorder. It means both conditions are present, and thus implies that anxiety is a separate condition, not coming from the bipolar disorder itself. If the symptoms are coming from bipolar disorder itself, then they should get better when the bipolar disorder gets better. But if they are coming from a separate condition, they could persist even when the bipolar disorder improves.

I want to talk today about panic attacks with bipolar disorder. When I was young, I had my first panic attack when I was a sophomore in high school. I was in algebra class and the teacher called me up to the board to solve a simple equation. I knew the answer, but I froze. I started to sweat and I started to shake. My face went slack and it was awful.

Panic disorder is a diagnosis given to people who experience recurrent unexpected panic attacks—that is, the attack appears to occur from out of the blue.

Bipolar disorder is a lifelong mental condition. It causes extreme mood swings that may range from high highs to low lows. These mood swings can cause major changes in mood, energy, and activity levels, and can interfere with your quality of life and daily activities. Everyone experiences some anxiety from time to time during their lives, such as before taking a test or making a big decision. However, some people have anxiety disorders that cause them to experience more than short-term worries. These people may have an anxiety disorder, which is not limited to life events and may worsen over time. Sometimes people with anxiety disorders have worries so severe that they interfere with their ability to carry out their everyday activities.

Most people feel anxious at times and have their ups and downs. It is natural for a mood to change or anxiety level to rise when a stressful or difficult event occurs. But some people experience feelings of anxiety or depression or suffer mood swings that are so severe and overwhelming that they interfere with personal relationships, job responsibilities, and daily functioning. These people may be suffering from an anxiety disorder , bipolar disorder, or both. It is not uncommon for someone with an anxiety disorder to also suffer from bipolar disorder.

    It is has long been appreciated that the presence of prominent anxiety in major depressive episodes is associated with a greater severity and persistence of depressive symptoms, whether that anxiety is manifest by the presence of panic attacks 1 — 4 or by more global dimensions of anxiety 5 — 8.
