I also live with bipolar disorder and over the last 13 years I have experienced four episodes – two lows, two highs – including a near-fatal suicide attempt.
The aftermath of each episode has always been the same – broken confidence, shame and embarrassment. That said, each and every time, with the invaluable help and support of my family and friends, I’ve managed to pick myself up, forgive myself for any out-of-character behaviour while sick and, most importantly, I have always found the positive lessons in each of these experiences.
This blog is for anyone who has or is going through hardships; be it with mental health, or any of life’s curveballs. It’s a place where openness and real talk are encouraged – it’s ok to not be coping with life but it’s imperative we discuss it and get the support we need to dust ourselves off and carry on with life, that little bit wiser.
This website is also about celebrating life and it’s entire colourful spectrum of experiences. I’m a firm believer that tough times make the good times so much more beautiful.
Looking forward to our journey together!
