It’s another milestone for The Bipolar Writer. I woke up this morning to this fantastic news.
How did we get here? I had no idea when I started this blog. What would become of it, and if it would honestly go anywhere. I have started two other blogs in my life, and none came even close to this one. I haven’t reached a year. Seven months and we have grown together.
I never thought when I wrote my first blog post as James Edgar Skye and The Bipolar Writer that this would even be possible— five thousand followers on my blog. I am grateful for every one of my fellow mental illness community bloggers for being a part of this experience.
I have shared so much with you, my followers. The connections I have made helped me become a better person, a better writer. I have come to terms with my diagnosis. I am Bipolar, and I have an illness— that’s okay in my mind. I learned to celebrate the little triumphs in this life from all of my followers.
For so long I believed there was something wrong with me, something I had to hide. My eyes are open. I have learned that together we can fight the stigma.
Thank you for being a part of this experience. Here is to many more milestones ahead.
