This blog is about me. It started as a mental health blog, but it’s become so much more than that. I write about how mental illness affects me and how life events affect me. I write about how my other medical conditions affect me. I post my pictures and share my creativity. Occasionally I even write something educational. 😉

I originally thought this blog would have something to do with work and being a scientist with mental illness, but it hasn’t turned out that way. It’s just turned into a little bit of everything that makes up me. And I am more than my bipolar.

Feel free to share with me your thoughts, ideas, successes and even failures.  We all need support so let’s share our world with each other and with the non-bipolars to move towards understanding.

NOTE:  I am NOT a pyschiatrist, PhD psychologist, or a counselor in any way, shape, or form.  This is my struggle for survival and quest for understanding.  That’s all.  Thank you for visiting and sharing.  🙂

  1. I visited your blog after reading a post you had written on another blog. The above is totally relatable to me! I hope you have begun to find SOME understanding already. Sure as hell hard to find these days.

  2. Oh I am glad I found you. I too have bipolar disorder and host a Monday Madness linky – for bloggers who are involved with mental health. Post anything related to the topic – informative, creative, news, personal experience – whatever. And go see other hoppers. I refresh the link the last Monday of each month, but in between you can link up as many times as you like. I imagine you’ll have a lot to offer! Do stop by and say hello whether you choose to participate or not. Good to make contact.

  3. Our family just welcomed bipolar type II as a new member… It seems it had been living with us for many years, but didn’t have a name. It took a huge place when it first came to our lives, but now, we’re working to tame this mighty beast and live comfortably with it.

    • Thank you for stopping by. We have a very active and supportive bipolar support group on WordPress, so please feel free to participate. I also encourage you to view our group collaborative blog, A Canvas of the Minds and check out our blogrolls. There are lots of great bipolar blogs out there – sharing stories of our own attempts to tame the mighty beast known as bipolar.
