I write about my experiences with bipolar disorder and LGBTQ topics. I also post some poetry/creative writing and glimpses of my own daily life. My goal is to contribute to the conversation about mental health and LGBTQ issues. In other words, to fight against stigma by not staying silent. I want to reach out to those of you who are also suffering. I hope that some of you can connect with at least some part of this. I will light a candle for you because that is my way of praying.
