Sometimes when I can't sleep I'll wake up the next day to a phone full of saved Pinterest pictures that I don't fully remember looking at or saving. This happens frequently when I'm manic. Today was a whole new level of experience though.

You've probably already heard that May is mental health month. But technically every human has mental health so every day is mental health day. But I digress...
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.
