Reflections on Childhood Memories

Nightmares While I’m Awake

I lay in bed, my brain twisting with horrible thoughts. This weekend my husband takes two of our small children to a baseball game without me because I’ll stay home with the baby.

A Repost – Upgrading The Bipolar Writer Blog – I Need Your Help

What I am planning on doing is upgrading this blog to the business class. I can do a lot more with sharing the stories of others through this platform.
