Without the Darkness, I Wouldn’t See the Light

I found that quote yesterday and I can totally relate to it. I am bipolar and I am coming out of a bit of a depression. That is the reason that I haven’t posted anything on my blog for a little while. I feel like a million bucks the last couple days. Today I walked to the store and I couldn’t wipe the smile off my face. I felt like the sun was shining just for me. I could see beauty in things that would have made me sad or angry just a week ago.

Being bipolar is a blessing and a curse. When I’m good; I am so good. I feel energetic, beautiful, smart, funny, creative etc. I dance, sing, smile, make up songs and rhymes and just have a good time. I can spend a entire day alone and have the time of my life. But what goes up must eventually come down. Luckily my personality type is naturally more outgoing and energetic so I don’t get down too often. My medications also really help so that I don’t get full blown manic or severely depressed.

I haven’t shared much about my mental illness on here yet, but I am going to start writing more posts about it. So stay tuned! If you suffer as well I would love to hear about your experiences in the comments!
