Daring To Be Different

Be daring, be different, be impractical, be anything that will assert integrity of purpose and imaginative vision against the play-it-safers, the creatures of the commonplace, the slaves of the ordinary.

    I am Bipolar Mania for 33 years now. It came to me with stressful issues I encountered with death of my SON, loss of not being able to to fully do my job, I lost my career at 50 yrs old. My daughter was taken away at age 10 by her father.
    I was evaluated by two QME’s (professional doctors) and was awarded SSA Disability benefits by a Judge from SSA in 2004. I dealt with my stresses, I got help and medication. I attend ef several grief, bereavement classes. I voluntarily put myself in a mental hospital twice, because I needed an assessment. I knew I was not well. I am to be supported for my decision. I saved myself. Yes, I am ill, and have episodes, but I now stop, call an outgoing counseling clinic. I learned mindfulness and how to see the danger zones. Clinicians work with me and other patients.
