I am Veronica and I am a long-suffering bipolar person. I was diagnosed eight years ago however the bipolar diagnosis was first conveyed when I was around eight years old. I have BPD2 (bipolar disorder 2) and PTSD (post traumatic stress disorder) and recently borderline personality.
I had considered writing something a very long time ago, but have so many depressive episodes I lose myself and then have to climb the wall again. I have beautiful manic episodes where there is no more reasoning with the other me and everything is fun and fast and free. They never end well; but in those moments life was more than what I had dreamt of.
This blog is my way of working through my head. I welcome your comments and encouragements however I would appreciate that you are mindful that this is a public blog, which might be read by families and children and I would ask that you keep your replies to a “G” rated with a helpful rather than destructive tone.
Sincerely Veronica - A work in progress!
