“Sometimes the people around you won’t understand your journey. They don’t need to, it’s not for them.” –Joubert Botha
I am a 37 year old woman living and struggling with mental illnesses. It’s a daily battle and some days I succomb to depression and stay in bed and some days I feel great. This blog is about my daily experiences as they are unique to me. I do not speak for everyone with mental illness. However, I do hope to provide some insight into the mind of a manic depressive.
I have been diagnosed as bipolar/major depressive with acute anxiety, social anxiety, panic disorder & agoraphobia. It sucks about 80% of the time. The 20% is when I’m full on Manic and I wish I could feel like that all the time. It’s better than any high you can get anywhere else.
I am not normal. I’m weird, awkward, and at times, just ridiculous. I’m me… I don’t give a FUCK what people think of me and care less and less about others’ opinions the older I get. So that being said, feel free to contact or comment about anything you want. Thanks for reading!
