I Hate This Disorder (Bad Deb Day)

Hey, y’all– I was just on bipolarcentral.com, and saw what was written as the advertisement for this blog, and the part about my sharing the “ups and downs” of living with BP caught my eye. I tend to forget about that in the day to day part of this thing. I haven’t been on here […]

Bad Bipolar Day

Hey, y’all–In the interests of honesty, I have to tell you about the day I had yesterday, because my last post was so upbeat and positive, and I didn’t want y’all to think I was just oh so perfect and you aren’t, or that I don’t have the same struggles that you have or anything […]

Tell or Not Results

Hey, y’all–Well, it seems that there is pretty much evenly divided opinion on whether to tell people you have bipolar or not. Some have experienced misunderstanding and stigma, while others have experienced the opposite, and feel they have had a part in educating people about the disorder. I guess I feel I am in the […]

TO TELL OR NOT TO TELL

Hey, y’all–I need some help. I’m trying to write an article on when or if to tell people you have bipolar disorder, and I can’t find any information at all out there on this subject (which, of course, tells me that I really need to write an article on it!). So I need feedback from […]

Everyday Miracles

Sometimes I get so focused on the negatives in life, the downside that BP so easily surrounds me with, that I forget to “Stop and smell the roses”–to appreciate the everyday miracles that I take for granted.
