Growing into Me with Bipolar


This blog is a chronicle of the day-to-day work of rediscovering the real me.  As a child in an abusive home, to a young woman with bipolar disorder, and now learning that I have many different parts, I am in an ongoing venture to finally know who I am.  I am also a mother of 2 wonderful teens who have kept me on the path to discovery.

  1. Kat, A little note to thank you for joining me in my journey (following my blog). I am following your journey and reading your words, it’s like you are in the room with me; telling me your narrative. The words trickling into my vision and I see you, the characters and your sunshine come to life. Very few “authors” can do this for me….thank you thank you for sharing your life as somewhere, someone out there (me) is finding peace within them. Wishing you the best. x

    • i too am finding many similarities when i read your posts. for whatever reason (DID, bipolar, abuse, etc.) i was much as you appear to be for a very long time. i have, in the last 5 years, drastically changed in that regard. i find where you are to be very captivating, leading to much introspection about myself, as well as curious as to where this journey will take you.

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 14 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!
