And the title is “About”, about what? About face perhaps. Turn around. Face the other direction. Go in the direction you came from. U-turn? Who turn?
About? In relation to me. Me? Now we’re talkin.
Another idea, about, being all over the place without any order. Getting closer.
Brief summary is expected I suppose. So here you have it. Middle aged woman, I plan to live over 100. Married 35ish years. 5 Children, all grown. Mental illness tolerater -my own word , spell check doesn’t think it exists, now it does ’cause I wrote it. Expect to see more of it. I’m writing this blog because I need to alleviate my thoughts of the constant words that no longer serve a purpose for me yet could possibly enlighten another soul. The up side of me versus the down side of me. The need to explain to those around me the frequently unexplainable actions, comments, reactions and behaviors that I exhibit. Perhaps with this blog I will also better understand the inner workings of the bipolar mind.
In the days, weeks and months ahead, I hope to be able to share my experiences from the backyard swing of my daily life. I want to be able to shed light on the positive aspects of bipolar from having walked through so much negative. I wish to achieve a new level of awareness for others as well as myself that people with mental illness are worth understanding. It is my desire to accomplish this through writing my thoughts as good or bad as they may seem. Sometimes raw or whimsical. I want to share inspiring quotes and stories from others who are wading this stream with me.
About, yes bipolar U-turns, yes bipolar goes from one direction to the complete opposite, yes bipolar doesn’t always know who, yes bipolar can be all over the place at any given time . This is about bipolar.
I would appreciate any comments you may have concerning the words I express. Please feel free to share this blog with anyone who would benefit or perhaps just want to enjoy an interesting perspective on life with bipolar.
