    I am amazed by the way you find ways to describe what bi polar minds experience. This really hit me… and I thought WOW in so many ways it’s no wonder the whole mental health system infuriates you. I don’t know how to say, “well, this is fucking genius in black and white…” except right now because I am looking at the picture. I also see the mania… and it’s intensity. I don’t know what you experience, but wow… it’s also fucking genius that you can get up, at all.

    I don’t know what to say about the mania… I think d I d is different, somehow. I couldn’t explain it, but I see the difference in the picture… and that’s the big aha, I guess. And I feel really stressed about writing this, but shit.. everything psychology and medicine needs to know is in these posts, other posts by other bloggers, and we should start paying attention to the insights people have and stop waiting for government to show up in helpful ways.

    I think you’ve got a lot of the pieces.
    Thanks. You rock. Meredith

    • btw, i reblogged this from ‘the bipolar codex’. she is awesome in all her art and how it expresses every part those with bipolar live.

      however, I am DID as well, but the ‘bipolar codex’ speaks more to the ‘bipolar’ part of me, which, since i have a very small system which usually works separately, but for the same goal–the whole to function in the world, my bipolar seems to be the thing that i notice most, and work on the most.

      i am glad you enjoyed the post–might want to check out ‘the bipolar codex’ blog too!

      and yes, the mental healthcare system out to be speaking to us, those of us who talk about it, experience it, who are here in the world showing our real selves and our struggles. this is where they should be getting their information on how to develop better treatments, better meds and med management. too bad they think they already have all the answers, and we are left with a broken system that gives piece meal care and doesn’t address the person with the diagnoses.

Killing Me Softly: Emotional & Psychological Abuse

Now that physical abuse is in the limelight and punishable by law, abusers have resorted to more insidious forms of control. The effects are just as destructive, more enduring, and more difficult to overcome.

Seachy Waffles On. A chronic way of life!

The ups and downs of 21st Century life as a disabled dad. This is an honest account of my successes and failures and what I have learnt from them. How my disability has shaped my future, my neverending journey towards acceptance and a little bit of sarcasm and humour along the way. I have been battling Chronic Pain for 16 years and have made small steps towards living life again. I'm not after sympathy or pity, but I hope to encourage others and get a few words of encouragement myself along the way. Life is for living, pain or not make the most of things!
