— Kay Redfield Jamison (on Bipolar Disorder)
after my second manic episode it’s been a long journey to get back to a place where i feel i can express myself clearly. in one sense i’ve been too angry with myself to speak up. it’s a silly thing too. why be angry with yourself over a condition that you have no control over? bipolar disorder damn sure wasn’t my choice, but it is something i have to live with and come to terms with before i can move on with my life. I can’t be the only one who’s felt like there’s something they could have done to prevent the train wreck that is a mood disorder. the truth of the matter is, you cant, none of us can. i hope in the coming months i’ll be able to better articulate what i went through and how i’ve grown, maybe it’ll help someone else struggling just like me…
I feel really good about myself right now. Why? Because I have raised over 200 dollars for The Trevor Project. Last year in my home town 5 teenagers committed suicide and left an impact on me and I decided I would donate as much money as I could to teen suicide prevention. I have over 200 dollars and everyday that number rises. I encourage you guys on tumblr to also donate money to this great cause.
