Mission Statement

‪My Mission Statement

Welcome to the blog of The Bipolar Writer.

This blog is multifunctional. I will use it to advertise my brand, the types of literary works that I am writing as J.E. Skye, and of course my blog that chronicles my experiences with Bipolar One disorder.

I write young adult & adult fiction in novels and screenplays. I write mostly within the romance and drama genres (think The Fault in Our Stars.) I’m also writing a non-fiction memoir.

My goals are simple. I want to use this blog to help people because of this fact:

“Half of all chronic mental illness begins by age 14; three-quarters by age 24. Despite effective treatment, there are long delays—sometimes decades—between the first appearance of symptoms and when people get help.” (Source: National Alliance on Mental Health)

In sharing my own experiences and my writing, if I can help just one person, then it makes it worth it to write my content. When I first struggled with depression and suicide I was just about fourteen. I never really knew what was wrong with me.

I really look forward to connecting with real people in my work. More about me in the “About” section of my blog.

J.E. Skye

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 donate will get a special mention in my memoir on a page dedicated to those that made my memoir possible. Thank you in advance!

  1. Welcome to Virtual vitamins. I have dealt with a lot of mental/emotional problems in a wide variety of people at various distances from me, relationally and physically. I tell my students (I teach Medical English in Japan) that many of the most creative people in history have been bipolar, including Handel. May my words be a blessing and encouragement to you.

  2. Hi James. I read through your bio and am looking forward to reading more. My childhood was the result of a biopolar father, who was the result of his bipolar father. However, I continue to work with my history of depression through mediation. I found that is looking at my mind again and again, over many, many years I started to make friends with myself. Here’s the site I use. https://learning.tergar.org/


  3. Wow, 14 was exactly when I started first to struggle, a bit bulimia, some self-harm, suicidal, just dark and confused. I always put it down to teenage hormones… only looking back now do I see the pattern that has always been there. The constant ups and downs, sometimes worse, sometimes better. I’m a week away from my first psychiatrist appointment. No idea where to start explaining myself….fingers crossed I will finally get some answers.

    You are writing really clearly, it is insightful and I can relate. Thank you for sharing!
