I have been sorta lost in my anxiety these past few weeks and I have felt disconnected from my fellow bloggers. I have always been good at connecting with my followers and the bloggers that take the time to follow and like my blog. I must apologize. It has always been my goal for The Bipolar Writer blog to connect, not just share my experiences and expect the world to recognize what I am writing.
I have been far from having balance in my life. My insomnia has taken its punches over the last few weeks. When it’s not sleep it is my social anxiety spiraling. I have been busy especially this past week with finals, but that isn’t a good excuse. My biggest goal with my blog is to talk about the issues surrounding the mental illness stigma. It has been tough February.
I had such a good start to the year, and I am not saying that things are so bad that I am feeling that 2018 is not my year— I am heading in the right direction. I just feel as if I don’t spend enough time working towards connecting with my fellow mental illness bloggers.
I think my expansion of my blog was a good thing. Adding new contributor writers has brought fresh new ideas to my blog. I don’t regret much since starting this blog, but the fact that I have been neglecting to check out other blogs has bothered me the last couple days.
So I am going to do better. Spend more time here. There never seems to be enough hours in the day, but this place. My blog. Is the reason why I have been able to write my memoir. The way that people have responded has made me a better writer.
So if we follow one another and I haven’t visited your blog, link it in the comments. If we have been friends and I have been on you blog, comment your latest blog post. I plan to spend one hour a day just reading blogs. I want to be able to back up my own writing and see what my people are writing about, it means the world to have as many following bloggers as I have for The Bipolar Writer blog. I need to find peace by reading the blog posts of others like me.
Always Keep Fighting.

Please Help me Publish my Memoir
I have finished the first draft of my memoir “The Bipolar Writer,” and I have decided to go down the self-publishing route. If you can donate anything towards my goal, it would mean the world to me. Those that give will get a special mention in my memoir on a page dedicated to those that made my memoir possible. Thank you in advance!
