Starting a New Adventure
It’s true, I have not written a personal blog post in about five days. I have to admit the pull to write every day is not as strong right now. It helps that I have the most amazing contributors and guest bloggers help fill The Bipolar Writer blog with unique mental health topics, and it has been great to see the conversation move in the positive direction as I add more contributors to my blog. I have been working on myself especially in the realm of my social anxiety.
I finally overcame my latest depression cycle which is just amazing. I thought about specific points during my most recent depression cycle that I was in for the long haul. It turned out I learned some new things about myself and my depression. I feel going into June and that the seasonal element of my Bipolar depression is indeed over for 2018. Sure, there will be depression, but I am confident that it will not be as bad during the summer– my past is a great thing. I learned things.
June marks some significant changes for The Bipolar Writer. I am moving to a new house in late June. It’s a new start. A fresh start really. A shift in my mental health and a reset of my story and journey. Speaking of stories, I am so close to the finishing editing my memoir. I recently got some critical help from a fellow blogger to help me along my road to self-publishing. I am hoping to launch a digital version of my memoir The Bipolar Writer this summer. If I can get some success with a digital version, I hope to save enough to do a print version of my memoir.
July is another significant milestone in my life. I still can’t believe I am just four weeks from completing my Bachelors Degree! July 1st, 2018 is my final day, and I will be graduating summa cum laude from Southern New Hampshire University. It is has been such a hard road, but somehow with everything I deal with, I will graduate at the top. It is a fantastic feat that last year I was unsure I would finish.
My work in the month of May on my social anxiety has been quite helpful. I am always working on getting back on track with my cognitive behavioral therapy which I have had the most success with getting my anxiety under control.
I am hopeful that these changes are just the beginning. I will refocus my summer on my writing before starting my Master’s program in October. Things are moving in the right direction. I have some fantastic ideas for mental health topics of discussion in the coming weeks. I am so happy with the content my contributor bloggers bring to my blog.
I plan on having adventures this summer. Going out into the world and seeing things that I miss so much. Walks on the beach. Traveling. Most of all meeting new people and reconnecting the people that mean the world to me. My move is going to add changes in the positive to my life. I can only keep moving forward.
Let’s live life this summer! Always keep fighting.
Please Help me Publish my Memoir
I am almost done editing my memoir “The Bipolar Writer,” and I have decided to go down the self-publishing route. If you can donate anything towards my goal, it would mean the world to me. I am still working towards enough to pay an artist for a good cover. Those that donate will get a special mention in my memoir on a page dedicated to those that made my memoir possible. Thank you in advance!
