I wanted to share this post and my latest episode of The Bipolar Writer Podcast. I will let the episode speak for itself, but I am dealing with a dark part of my life.
I do not have an official “this is what the podcast will be,” which is okay. There are no right or wrong answers, only life in the now. Why not continue to be spontaneous like it has always been with the blog. One thing to note, The Bipolar Writer Podcast will be listener supported through Patreon. You can use the link below to become a part of the support.
The Bipolar Writer Podcast Episode Four – Let’s Talks about Suicide.
he last thing I wanted or needed when I had a suicide plan in place was for other people to talk me out of it. I was in a dark place in October.

September is Suicide Prevention Awareness month. While it’s great there’s a month dedicated to this, it should be 365-day year awareness. I understand suicide can be a touchy subject especially for those who have struggled with it themselves or have lost a loved one to it. I wanted to share my personal story with suicide… Continue reading September is Suicide Prevention Awareness Month
Yesterday I turned 26 years old. I had an absolutely wonderful day spent with my family and my boyfriend. There was nothing lavish or anything but it was time well spent and I felt appreciated by everyone. One of my love languages is quality time so getting to spend time with the people I’m closest… Continue reading A Birthday Reflection
I have not written on here for a while because of how up and down my mental health has been. Especially over the past week, I have had some really low days. On Saturday I couldn’t get out of bed, shower or muster the energy to open Netflix to watch a movie to calm my… Continue reading The Ups & Downs of Being Mentally Ill
In the late fall of 2016 I was at my lowest point mentally of my entire 25 years on Earth. I laid in bed most of the day, suicidal thoughts constantly buzzed in my head and I was struggling with self-harming on an almost daily basis. My therapist was very serious when she told me… Continue reading Finding My Antidepressant Match
