    I thought that this picture was appropriate because of my last post about how voices can be stolen and we need to work to reclaim them. You're never as powerless as you think.
  • Cinema: Who's Story is it Anyway?
    on Jun 19, 2013
    I'm find the backlash against The Lone Ranger a bit amusing at this point. People are getting angry that a native American didn't play Tonto and they got Johnny Depp instead. Okay, well what about the fact that Sean Penn played a character with an in...

  • Coming Out
    on May 15, 2013
    ...people with invisible disabilities, although often criticized for "passing" or failing to "come out", are in fact required to come out repeatedly; because others assume they are non-disabled, they must regularly identify their unseen impairments a...
  • The Institution: Part 1
    on Mar 26, 2013
    I was surprised at first, how small it was. Maybe the size of a one bedroom house, one of the ones that they advertise in the newspaper as having one and a half bathrooms, something I've always found weird. There were halls that stretched out in the...
  • Fear and Loathing
    on Mar 26, 2013
    Sometimes I'm so scared I can hardly stand it. Sometimes I just have to give myself over to the fear, give up, close my eyes and wait. When people think of bipolar disorder do they ever think about fear? Do they only consider the ups and downs, the m...

    on Mar 20, 2013
    I went through my first bought of depersonalization last weekend and it about killed me. I managed to piss off and push away the people I love most which was the last hing that I needed. For anyone who has gone though depersonalization then maybe you...
  • What I've Learned From Bipolar Disorder
    on Feb 8, 2013
    I've learned that people are fragile, all of us. The constant balancing act I am forced to perform each day has taught me that the smallest things can send someone over or brighten their day. So the moral of the story is smile, at anyone and everyone...

  • The Flip Side of Manic
    on Feb 7, 2013
    It's crushing me quietly today, the sneaky depression that has creeped up. I didn't even know it was there until the day was over and I sat quietly, driving home from classes. Is this what everyone feels? That's the question that always haunts me. Do...

    There is no such thing as normal. Normal is made up. No one meets the criteria for normality, which is wonderful.

    I recently came upon a Facebook site titled 'This is What Disability Looks Like' where people with disabilities send in pictures of themselves to show what disability really looks like. I wanted to do something similar to that so I put up this pictur...
  • There is No Grieve in Bipolar
    on Feb 6, 2013
    Today in one of my university classes the teacher said that many people with disabilities and their loved ones often go through the 5 steps of grief: denial, anger, bargaining, depression, and finally acceptance. May I please call bullshit on this? I...
