The Truth About General Hospital’s Kirsten Storms And The Bipolar Rumors

Back in April 2022 and in an interview with Maurice Benard on his YouTube series State of Mind, did admit to being bipolar and dealing with a lot of anxiety in her life. She put it this way, “I experience anxiety frequently. I have bipolar 1. I easily get frantic about things. I felt flustered, fear and stressed. I am obsessed with being on time. I don’t know if you noticed, but I was exactly on time when I entered the building. I obsessively worry about that kind of stuff. I have had panic attacks about that kind of stuff. My psychiatrist tried to change one of my medications at one point, and I had an adverse reaction to it.”
