I primarily post rough drafts of memoirs, essays, and other thoughts regarding mental illness, specifically bipolar disorder. I would urge anyone who suffers this affliction to take a gander and know that you are not alone; I would also urge anyone who cares for, loves, or knows a person with bipolar disorder to take a peek and hopefully gain a bit of insight into how differently our minds work. I cannot stress enough that I am not bipolar and neither are you-- we have bipolar, but we are far more than just a disease. We are people.

    If God is so great, why did He give me a mental illness? Is it part of His plan?

    My first experience with mania. I hope it helps someone, somewhere, in even a small way.
