I was sitting in my therapists office yesterday and we were talking about how I feel better and look better than I have in a long time. We discussed my experiences with medication and side effects and Sara asked for details on this last one because it may just help someone else.
At first she joked that I should start my own support group with all that I’ve had to put up with and survived. And then she said this.
“You know you should start a blog. Seriously. Everything you’ve been through could be a good resource for people.”
I smiled and nodded, because for some reason I wasn’t able to tell her I have been since November.
In all reality though, writing this blog has been a tremendous help to me. I haven’t really noticed until the past month or so. And the fact that Sara thinks that my experience could help someone makes me feel good, because that’s kinda one of my goals. I want to be open about it so I can help people–make someone feel a little bit less lonely and maybe give them hope.
I know that I will always have really bad days, but knowing the fact that I can survive the bad days and help someone in the process, might make the bipolar slightly more tolerable. Just a little bit.
