I’m using this a tool to help me from going insane with boredom

Keywords: anxiety , bipolar , mental health , schizophrenia

I enjoy doing this because of my passion for computers and the web. I have my diploma in graphic design and visual communication and I love web design. Lastly I have always been a prolific journal writer. I have dozens of books filled with my my ramblings and thoughts. I have always found writing to be therapeutic but once the book is full it gets tossed to the side and never really reflected back on.

I don’t know where it comes from, but new ideas are flourishing in my [mind]

Keywords: depression , growing up , life improvement , new projects , self improvement

Some things in our lives are like muscles. When you lift weights, your muscles get stronger. Writing every day is making me desire to do it more. I want to create new blogs about different subjects.

My Literary Fantasia

The whole concept of having a unique identity is a strangely comforting, yet terrifying thing to comprehend. In some ways, it is a way to show the world that you do not conform to their stereotypes and ideals. In other ways, it makes you a target – an archery post of sorts, for those wishing to lash out with their arrows of steel-tipped mercilessness. And still in other ways, it is a shroud of responsibility, one that tells you that you need to uphold this very notion of self.

Hello, reader.

This is a fairly unconventional way for me to start a post.

The truth is, I’ve been doing a lot of thinking into the concept of the self. What is it? How does one define it? Why does an idea such as this even exist? And how is this supposed “self” formed?

I hear the rabble-rousing of dogs outside…

No matter how much you want to deny it, self care WILL increase the health of your mind, body, and soul. One thing to remember, is that self care is not a one time deal. You have to commit. You have to force yourself to do what makes you feel good, even when all you want to do is lay in bed.

The Bipolar Writer Mental Health Blog

I wanted to share a special achievement for The Bipolar Writer blog.


I was told by WordPress that I have reached 10,000 plus followers. Wow. I never imagined about a year ago that this blog would get to this point. I started this blog to share my experiences with Bipolar One, and talk about my brand–The Bipolar Writer.


I never imagined that this thing that I started would take off. I figured that after a month things would change to a point where I would get bored. This wasn’t my first blog.


I am amazed every day that I get to wake up and know that my blog is making a difference in the mental health community. To all the contributor writers, thank you. For all that are following, thank you. It has been an honor to be sharing my experiences with you. To many more amazing people finding…
