hose of us in the mental illness community all have an origins story, and mine is no different. My journey began at twenty-two, but in truth, this journey starts at the beginning when my symptoms first started to take shape. It is easier to look back on it now because those early memories are hard to forget.
I wanted to give an update of the campaign going on for The Bipolar Writer blog and raising the money to upgrade to the business blog. This will take this blog to the next level and I will be able to allow people … Continue reading An Update on my GoFundMe and Raising Money
As January 2019 ends and February 2019 begins, we will be ending a strong month of January for The Bipolar Writer blog. I always like to start the month off … Continue reading Idea Topics for February
I have been lucky if I think about it logically (though with depression nothing is ever logical.) I got through October, November, and December without depression, a rare thing. My old friend depression is usually right on my shoulder at this time of year. It is no surprise, at least not entirely. I had hope that things would continue on a good trend.
Loving yourself first is where the healing really begins for us. We have to love yourself before that we can start the healing. If you’re like me, you forget when you are lost in depression that things always get better. This life is all about the ebb and flow of symptoms. How you deal with symptoms in the present, can mean how long your depression or anxiety affects you.
I hope that all of us in the mental illness blogging community have the same goals–to end the stigma surrounding mental illness. I believe that to keep the fight going and maybe educate those that have never walked a day in our shoes, it is imperative to share your story. We are all unique, and though we may share similar symptoms of our collective illnesses, it is how you deal and your past that might help future mental illness sufferers.
Sleep. My oldest enemy. My sleep issues have been around longer than my anxiety or even depression. It has always been an issue. Sleep eludes me almost every day. It … Continue reading My Insomniatic Life
It had been a while. To be honest, I don’t miss panic attacks. I hate them because I lose myself in the panic attack, and control is what I crave … Continue reading My Last Panic Attack
What I am planning on doing is upgrading this blog to the business class. I can do a lot more with sharing the stories of others through this platform. What I want to do is take this blog to the next level. I want to be able to allow others to sell their work on my blog. (It will also help me sell my own work so there is that part of why I would like to upgrade.)
was so ecstatic about how I have been able to be so productive this winter. My seasonal component has not been an issue (SAD), but the past few days I could feel the weather changing my mood. It has been rainy here the last couple days, and while I often feel good when it rains it not the case at this moment.
I don’t often talk about the time just before I made the decision to write this blog. I was good with my mental health, but at the same time, I … Continue reading Why This Blog Means the World to me
