For a while now, and part of the reason that posts are so rare here, it’s just been me writing the content for the site. And like many others that live the life that I do (freelancer, mom and mental health survivor), the best of intentions get swept under the rug.
The blog used to be all about the stuff that bipolars used to need to know. It was, in part, about taking control of our lives – and in 2003, when I started, there was no other mental health blog like it. We didn’t talk about suffering – instead we talked the talk and walked the walk. We’ve had posts from all manner of people over the years, but I think that it’s about time that we changed the blog to actually focus on what I know about. My experiences with mental health.
So, in the next few weeks and months, I’ll be rebranding the site entirely. In part to support the books coming out (yes, there’s books), but mostly so I feel like I can actually say something on the site again that isn’t harping on about advocating for yourself and gives me a more personal connection to what advice I want to give.
So, if there’s anything anyone wants to know, I’d love to hear from you.
