My Reason for Blogging

One of my biggest beliefs in life is that if you look hard enough there is usually clarity in organized chaos. When I look back on my life, I can see all of the problems I have had lead to this moment in time. As a history major, I realize the importance of putting things... Continue Reading →

On Finishing Undergrad

Yesterday I handed in my completed and administration approved graduation application to the registrar office. I cannot adequately put into words the amount of pride and relief I feel at this moment. My undergraduate career was an extremely difficult and trying time in my life. I dealt with many roadblocks, and stops and starts with... Continue Reading →

Being Anonymous

The amount that I think about being bipolar has remarkably decreased over time. It is not my first thought in the morning and I don't ruminate over it before bed.

To Joe

“Maybe you do belong in school,” Joe looked at me with intention. He was the first person in my early recovery to suggest that I go back to school. It was late fall and I was thinking about going back to school for the spring semester. My family, friends, and treatment team were hesitant because... Continue Reading →
