I want to welcome you to this space. A space so just be Bipolar, to put it first, to stop fighting for a minute. A space to think about it, feel about it, to be a little encouraged or inspired. To gather a grain of hope.
This was an impulse. I am sure you can relate. However, it is also the tiny sprouting of a seed that fell on my heart a long long time ago. I know there are so many of us speaking up and out and openly through blogs so I ask myself why I am doing this. What can I offer? Why do I think it matters what I say? I don’t really know. All I know is that I’ve heard this call too many times to ignore it anymore. I want to add my voice. I heard the voice of stigma one more time and decided I had to help make our voice stronger. I just felt it was time for me to stand up. I believe in us. I believe we can make it better.
I want to hear your voices here. I want it to be for all of us.
