An Overview

This blog started in 2018 after my diagnosis of Bipolar Type 1. I’ve been blogging daily, or at least posting, since September 28, 2018.

This blog, it was meant to just be a vent when I started. I was so…when I was first diagnosed, it felt like my world had been completely upended. I was angry.

But my coping mechanisms became the primary expression of my depression and mania swings, other than how I just physically feel.

I pour myself to the web page here; I talk about my adventures of the ‘malfunctioning meatbag’ that is me. My successes, frustrations, and personal challenges all bear mentioning.

I post many things here. Recipes. Book Reviews. Rants about how I can’t seemingly function like a proper adult at times. Memories of bygone times, more rarely, but recaps of my day and the struggles or wins the day held most often.

I thank you, dear reader, for coming on this adventure with me and welcome any comments or questions you may have. Feel free to reach out, even if only to say ‘hello’.

And don’t forget: take your meds!
