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.

  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.
