crowd illustrationBoy, oh boy, did you guys eat up the “Caffeine and Bipolar Disorder” post! A ton of views and a ton of comments – which brings me to this: I am not a professional. What I write on this blog are my own experiences. I cannot speak for the entire bipolar community, but I can tell you what has happened to me. I can talk about what it is like to live with bipolar disorder, OCD, and anxiety.

I do everything in my power to stay well, and I bet you do, or want to, too. That is why I shared that caffeine affected me negatively because maybe it is something that affects you. It’s something my doctors warn me about. In one instance I was even chastised by my psychiatrist for bringing in a Starbucks cup to my appointment.

The point is this isn’t a news blog roll – though there are plenty out there if that is what you are looking for. This blog is personal, it’s anecdotal. This is the way I write. I write the way I live – freely and authentically.

I am thankful for you, dear reader, and will do everything in my power to help you navigate the waters of mental illness.
