Answer this for BP Hope – How do you navigate the dating scene with bipolar?

As some may know, (look out I’m about to toot my own horn), on Wednesdays I’m an ambassador blogger at BP Hope Magazine.  This week I gave my own little twist on Dating with Bipolar. BP Hope is looking for your dating experiences.  Just answer “THE Question” and submit it to the editor and you may be included in the magazine’s SOUND OFF section in the upcoming issue.  There is a deadline, so hurry up and make up a fake boyfriend or girlfriend, no… I mean share your real dating stories.

News Flash: Cutting and Self-injury on the Rise

Psychology-Cartoons-for-Mental-health-humor-by-Chato-b-stewart-150x150.jpg Cutting/Self-Injury is not just a “teenage girl’s” problem.  Men/ boys do it, too. It is no secret that I, like most of you, grew up tormented in one way or another.  For me, I was the outcast with severe “father issues.”

One of my mal-productive coping mechanisms was cutting, and it started early for me. This violent self-mutilation was my way out of my inner turmoil. I hid it from my family for years. I can remember the emotions that led up to the act, but I can never remember the pain.  To me, that pain felt better than what was going on in my head.
