I’ve been working from home for about a month now. As I hope many of you are, I am staying home about 95% of my weeks, the 5% is just to go out for groceries and pick up takeaway orders from some local restaurants. Being home all of this time has made the voice of… Continue reading Depression While in Quarantine
I have been working on getting back to this point. I am announcing that once again, The Bipolar Writer: A Memoir is finally available to buy once again on Amazon!
10 years is a really freaking long time. Looking back I think this may have been the most transformative decade of my life because so many monumental things happened. I graduated from high school and college. I got my first part time job at Wendy’s (a fast food restaurant in America) and first full time… Continue reading A Decade Mental Health Reflection
Starting a new job can be challenging for anyone but when mental illness is tossed into the mix, things can be even more difficult.

Getting into a cycle of negative and pessimistic thoughts is so easy for me. I look at a situation and can pick out all of the insurmountable challenges. Whether it’s related to work, writing, relationships or general life, I see life with a negative perspective. It’s like having permanent sunglasses on that prevent me from… Continue reading How Do I Be Positive?
Since 1997 when my parents built my family home, my room has been my special place. I am safe here among all that is familiar. My four walls stained with blue sticky tack from years of hanging posters up and my cozy bed that I share with my cats. Whenever I am feeling anxious or… Continue reading Losing My Safe Space
In my endless YouTube watching I recently stumbled upon a cooking video starring Christy Carlson Romano (Wren from “Even Stevens” and Kim from “Kim Possible”) and her “Kim Possible” co-star Will Fridel (he is Ron Stoppable and is also famous for playing Eric Matthews on “Boy Meets World”). In that episode Christy asks why everyone… Continue reading Nostalgia is Comforting
ask a lot from the followers of this blog. Maybe too much. I about to publish my first book with a legit indie publisher and The Bipolar Writer: A Memoir is becoming a reality and will be published soon. Update: I am in my final edits and working on my cover with my artist. It sounds like everything will be done on 8/15 as a tentative completion date. I need help continue to be able to write full-time.
