Thursdays with NAMI: Fatin Abdal-Sabur speaks candidly about life with bipolar 2
Thursday, February 16, 7:00pm
Fatin Abdal-Sabur is an educator and writer who lives in Maryland. In 2016 she was diagnosed with bipolar disorder, a condition marked by alternating periods of elation and depression. She has since experienced two hospitalizations and subsequent recovery. Her specific diagnosis is Bipolar 2, in which the “up” moods never reach full-blown mania. The less-intense elevated moods in bipolar II disorder are called hypomanic episodes, or hypomania.
Today the New Jersey native is dedicated to sharing her story and is a regular volunteer with NAMI Baltimore and its local affiliate in Prince George’s County. She is a former teacher of English as a Second Language and has 17 years of experience as a writing educator. Join us for a candid discussion of life with bipolar 2, social anxiety, and suicidal thoughts. This event is free and open to the public. Find us on Facebook Live or register to participate on Zoom.
