Bio: Diagnosed with Bipolar Disorder and Borderline Personality Disorder at 17, Generalized Anxiety Disorder at 23, made it to 29 until I ended up at a mental facility, ECT at 31. Attempting to accept, treat, cope, and survive. The journey has been, and I'm sure will continue to be, horrifically awful and bizarrely hilarious all at once.

    Hi Bipolar in Bloom,
    Just thought I’d comment and say it feels good to not be alone. Pushing 30, raising almost 3 kids and trying to hold a passion for 1 job at a time is tough. This illness robbed me of so much growing up- and as unique as we all are BP’s, we still fight to hold on. Hold on to dear life. Hold on for dear life. I run two blogs, just started the BP one. I needed a space to be free as a bipolar, to talk about feeling trapped by the illness at the same time.
    I love your honesty.

      Thank you so so much for your kind comment! I like your words – holding on to dear life, holding on for dear life – that’s so true. This has become very therapeutic for me, I wish you the same with your blog and look forward to reading more.

    Hi 🙂
    “horrifically awful and bizarrely hilarious”, I think this is a pretty fantastic phrase to use to describe your experiences! I can certainly relate! I find if I can laugh at the hilarious (like me deciding to climb Everest with no climbing experience, poor fitness, no money, and only a few months to prepare) then it makes things just a little easier here and there.
    I look forward to checking out your blog!
    Take care.

    Hello there. You had me at the sunflowers (my favorites.) I’ve also just recently decided, “you know what, I need proper treatment,” and that’s what I’m doing. Kudos to us for going on this journey! 🙂
