This is about my life, more so about the journey that got me to the place I am.  My goal is to share my story and help those that have been diagnosed with Bipolar.  Bipolar has been my curse for over 17 years and I’ve spent those years in denial at times and now hiding the truth about myself as I try to maintain this disorder and live a life that would be far from normal.  I hide this struggle for fear of judgment I would face from the world, from even family and friends.  This disorder is no joke and people don’t realize that it can be all consuming day after day without relief.  After all these years I’m tired of hiding, I’m tired of hold back and not letting those that I care and love, truly care and love me back as I am, not the facade I try to maintain.
