Mental illness from firsthand experience.
Awareness, self-help, personal experiences, and more.

If you’re interested in reading some personal encounters, opinions and other various material from a sufferer of the mental illness called Bipolar Disorder, you came to the right place.

This site is ideal for: people suffering from mental illness, their families, friends, and people who may be interested in me personally.

I’m going to give you a view from my perspective of what it’s like to be mentally ill, how it affects me and has impacted my life in various ways.
I’d also like to bring together all that I’ve learned about my illness into one central place, so that others can easily access it.
This will include things such as scientific research, coping skills I’ve learned, among other things.

¬†This place exists because…

I decided to start writing about my life – both past and present – as a form of self-therapy.
At the same time, I wanted to share some of my feelings and thoughts with my family and friends.
And I figured some other people may find it useful as well.

Maybe after reading through some of this, people who know me will get a better understanding of who I am, how I really feel, and why I act certain ways.
And for the people who don’t know me — maybe you can relate to me and either learn something about yourself, or someone else you care about.
I’ve been forcing myself to remember things about my life as I was growing up, learn how they may have affected me – and to deal with and accept them for myself.
So I’ll be sharing at least something about those experiences.
