Through work with Dr. Eliot, a variety of behavioral therapies and different medications, Chang has learned to cope with his symptoms but still struggles.

“It hurts to know that even my wife, the person I love with all my life, can still be in the crosshairs of my illness,” he says of Grace, whom he met at a nightclub in 2014 during a manic episode.

"When times get tough, the one thing that always keeps me grounded is the fact that I know [Dave is] always trying to be better," Grace said on an episode of his podcast, The Dave Chang Show. "That gives me a lot of hope."

“I’m a work in progress,” says Chang. "I'm still at it. I'm still here."
