I have struggled with mental illness for along time and was diagnosed with bipolar in 2008! I have had some extreme highs and some dark lows! I have learnt to take every day as it comes and know that it’s okay not to be okay and not be ashamed of my illness! I do struggle sometimes to work out whether some of my thoughts are what I actually think or are they medicated. I have tried all sorts of therapy to help manage my illness and the best method I have found is writing this blog!

This Blog allows me to write down my thoughts and feelings, share my life and be a place where I am able to talk about topics or experiences which I can relate to and then give my view to help me learn from them. This is the best therapy for me! I highly recommend it! I have helped a number of people with it which makes it even more worthwhile! #worldmentalhealthday
