Nikita Dragun Breaks Down, Reveals Mental Disorder
In a video titled “what happened,” Nikita Dragun opened up about what she’s been going through recently. The YouTuber admits she thought transitioning from a man to a woman was the hardest thing she would ever have to do in life. She believed once she transitioned her life would be complete and she would achieve all of her dreams. Nikita Dragun never imagined that after transitioning she would have had to endure a mental disorder.
After building up to it, Nikita revealed to her YouTube followers that she had been diagnosed with a mental disorder. She was bipolar. For her followers unfamiliar with the disorder, she said it helped to picture it as a spectrum. On one side of the spectrum was manic and on the other side is depressed. She added that somewhere right in the middle was normal.
Nikita Dragun tells her followers bipolar disorder is exhausting because typically you land on one of the two extremes of the spectrum.
Leaned On Family For Support
Nikita Dragun revealed that during a manic episode, she did some things she wasn’t particularly proud of.

She was taken to the hospital where she was detained for her own safety.
Looking back, Nikita admits she’s thankful for the way things played out because she received an official diagnosis of bipolar. And, she was able to get some of the help she needed.
