Today I was accepted to be a part of the Bipolar Bloggers Network!
I’ve always primarily written for myself. Writing, for me, is an outlet, a way to promote healing, and a form of creative expression. I gave my blog website to a handful of friends and family members, but wrote for my own benefit. Recently I have thought more and more about writing for others as well as myself. I did, indeed, start this blog with the intent of using my experiences to promote awareness of mental illness, and reduce stigma.
I think it’s important to emphasise that all sorts of people, from all walks of life can be diagnosed with Bipolar disorder. ANYONE can be affected by mental illness. The Bipolar Blogger Network illustrates this point perfectly. The blogs showcased by the Bipolar Blogger Network are all so different and yet so familiar at the same time. A throng of diversity, tied together with the same diagnosis. There are some truly talented writers out there, and I would encourage you to hop on down to check out some of the awesome blogs and resources the community has to offer.
A huge thank you to Raeyn for adding me to the Bipolar Blogger Network. I love reading about other peoples experiences, I feel comfort in the words of others. So now, with a deep breath, I put my own experiences forward, and hope I can be of comfort to someone too.
Here’s to a new beginning.
Yay! So happy for you to join this wonderful group! Congratulations Rachael!!! :)))
p.s. I’m not awake – I meant I am happy that you joined this wonderful group. I need at least one cup of coffee before I can write anything and I’m too lazy to start the coffee pot! 😉
