There comes a point in a mentally ill person’s journey where being sick is just one component of a healthy whole. Thankfully I have gotten to the point where I am not my disease anymore. Even though I’m still battling with bipolar disorder I feel like I’m winning and slowly gaining a life as a reward. Now I have goals that aren’t just to survive the next three months without a severe mood swing. Hopefully sooner than later I can start working or work towards finishing school.
I’m very fortunate to have a family and friend that have been by me every step of the way and chose not to abandon me when I was at my worst. Also, throughout the years I have had phenomenal doctors and therapists that have helped me be me. Without the help of everybody I wouldn’t be here today writing this post. I am very thankful.
On that note, this will be my last post on this blog. I’m just sick of writing about being sick. It is time for me to move on. My therapist told me that this site could help others. If I find that there is truly an opportunity to do so I will continue, but until this point, I have wanted to keep this blog to family and friends. It has always been open to the public just in case someone that wanted to read could maybe benefit from it. I won’t delete this blog for some time in case someone that comes across it finds it beneficial in their recovery. If any of you guys out there want me to continue writing, please send me an email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Mom, King Boo, and all of you that have read my blog, thank you for reading.
