A lot of people have been reaching out to me lately. I'm so grateful to be a safe place for so many.
This is just me. Not every bipolar diagnosed person feels these things. I just want to clear the air on some things you might not realize or know about.
Bipolar disorder doesn't have a face. It can affect anyone. My name is Faith. I have Bipolar I. I have been fighting for as long as I can remember and I will continue to fight. I am bipolar strong.
-a poem by Faith
Have you ever had a bad ear infection? Mostly this happens when we are children. I am part of those lucky few who still get bad ear infections as an adult. Let me tell you, they're brutal.
Tomorrow I turn 25. Most people just roll their eyes and say, "shut up Faith, it's not a big deal." For me it is.
I've been trying to stay positive. So lately I've been trying to ask myself at the end of every day, "Faith, what's one lesson you learned today?" If anyone knows me they know it's not really possible for me to think of just one thing.
