Earlier this year I wrote a profile -- on myself -- for BP Magazine, a quarterly periodical for sufferers of Bipolar Disorder. The story is now out in the Summer 2011 edition of the magazine. As long-time readers know, I have Biploar Type II and have been dealing with it for quite bit. I'd argue most of my life, although I wasn't diagnosed properly until late 2005. I always told myself that if I reached a period of confidence and stability, I would write about it. Due to the stigma mental illness has, most people who are Bipolar, but live productive, full lives, don't talk about it openly, out of fear of being judged. But when I was going through the worst of it, I realized it would have meant the world to me to meet another bipolar sufferer who was stable and doing well -- just to know that it was possible. That the way I felt then would not be the way I would feel forever. I've been stable since the spring of 2009. And I'm grateful for the peace a supportive family, good doctors, good medicine and wonderful friends have helped me achieve. I couldn't have done it alone. To read an excerpt, click here.
