Many of you know the struggle I have at times with my mental issues, and the last few weeks have been just that…a struggle.
My own fault really, I became blase and thought I had everything under control. I ignored the signs and triggers and came down with a bang, leaving a trail of destruction in my path. It hasn't been a bed of roses for anyone but I am slowly picking up the pieces and gluing them back together.
Fabulous family, fabulous friends and fabulous doctors are helping me back.
Mental illness is nothing to be ashamed of, and neither is talking about it. I have ADHD and rapid cycling Bi polar, which can make me very hyper active and obsessive, leading to extreme manic episodes. My inner circuit board is not the same as others, but it is also responsible for my creativity. I wouldn't have one without the other.!!
For all of you out there suffering from mental illness, or those of you suffering from the fall out, please understand you are not on your own. Lets talk about it, lets free ourselves from the stigma and lets celebrate our uniqueness and run with it. Mwah to you all xx
