Thank You!

Wow! I just got home from work and checked my blog, and I am blown away—I had 277 views yesterday, which has NEVER happened before in the 7 1/2 months I’ve been doing it. I don’t know what caught peoples’ attention, but whoever you all are, I thank you from the bottom of my heart for reading what I have to say, and giving me hope that I can touch a life here and there…..and perhaps even change one every now and again. 🙂

I'm a retired registered nurse and writer who also happens to be street-rat crazy, if the DSM-IV.....oops, 5---is to be believed. I was diagnosed with bipolar I disorder at the age of 55, and am still sorting through the ashes of the flaming garbage pile that my life had become. Here, I'll share the lumps and bumps of a late-life journey toward sanity.... along with some rants, gripes, sour grapes and good old-fashioned whining from time to time. It's not easy being bipolar in a unipolar world; let's figure it out together.

  1. Thank you for writing this blog! I found your blog yesterday and read through all of your posts. I am trying to get over the denial of having a mental illness. Struggling…


    1. I hear ya, sister! I was trying to deny it myself even as recently as a few months ago…..for some reason I got it into my head that I’d only been going through an existential crisis for a couple of years and it was finally over. I should’ve known that was the time to call my psychiatrist, because I proceeded right into one of my worst manic episodes ever! Now all I have to do is look at the screen shot of my online mood chart, which covers 18 months, and any doubts I might entertain about the validity of my diagnosis goes right out the window. LOL
