A One Year Blog Annivesary

It was a risky venture starting this blog in September. In the distance, you knew that there was a chance that being Bipolar could stop this blog in its tracks. With October and November looming you made the decision to move forward. It was the right choice.

My Rededication to The Bipolar Writer Blog

It was the AKF campaign that made it possible for me to share my own story.
