31 Day of Five Minute Free Writes ~ Day 1 ~ Story
October 1, 2018
Today's writing prompt is the word "STORY".
I know a lot of people will probably tell you THEIR story. At first I wasn't going to do the same but as I think about it and am typing, I feel the burden to tell you something about myself that I haven't yet.
I've been skirting around the topic for some time. About 8 months, in fact.
Just around 8 months ago, I was diagnosed as having Bipolar 2.
I've written on my blog many times about my depression and anxiety issues but something about coming out and telling you that I struggle with Bipolar 2 was scary for some reason.
I'm still me. I just take a different prescription to help with the symptoms.
What a relief to tell you that aspect of my story.
My five minutes is up but my "STORY" isn't.
If you have questions about Bipolar 2, I highly recommend doing some research. Especially if you struggle with treatment resistant anxiety and depression.
Feel free to ask me questions in the comments.
