Do I have bipolar, or does it have me? The answer? Both. I have bipolar and I am bipolar. This disorder is something I live and struggle with everyday, but I also would not wish it away. With everything, there is give and take. You could take away the pain, but I would have to give away the lessons I have learned and the strength that I have earned.
Here are my thoughts, my words, and my journey. Sometimes it’s dark, sometimes it’s light, and sometimes it’s pretty hilarious.
Writing has always been an outlet for me, but hopefully I am not the only one that gains from this. Maybe you will identify with these pages, or they will help you to understand the bipolar brain of a loved one a bit more.
My name is Victoria, I’m 23, and my bipolar talks a lot of shit.
