    Hey.. My Name Is Brandon D..I was Diagnosed when I was 17 and that was 17 years ago.. So I have been Bipolar for half my Life. I have Bipolar 1 and it really has been a Roller Coaster.
    Having a good Routine helps everyday trying to stay on a Somewhat Healthy track while also working on my Research for my website that I want to start very soon. One of the best things that have also helped me alot was my love for movies and music! I listen to many great songs of all kinds and try to watch at least 4 to 5 movies every week although doesn’t always work out but I love it when it does๐Ÿ’“๐Ÿ˜.

      Hi Brandon that is excellent (all your enthusiasm for life, hobbies and working at staying well) – congrats to you. Art is a healer, I totally agree, and I’ve been reading quite a bit lately, but would definitely like to see more movies than I do – so much quality films out there.

      You would be great for an interview, let me know if you would like to participate. Best of luck with your blog. Writing is very cathartic to me, and I have a very unique advocacy that is much needed to counteract the ‘Big Pharma-controlled Bipolar Community’.

      We don’t need more drugs, new drugs. They’ve got plenty of those that are effective for crisis. We need better understanding of root causes of someone’s mood issues, and medical ways to treat. Psych meds are not medical care, they are phamacological bs guessing game toxic treatment that should only be used short-term.

  2. Right now…not well. Basically haven’t had the energy/time to do it. I’ve stayed up the past 2 nights thinking I’d find the energy to do it, but just ended up chatting with friends. Still…I have high hopes for tomorrow.

      I feel absolutely awful I did not reply to this comment. So sorry Kredit, please accept my apologies.

      Not sure what happened, my email notifications sometimes get missed, and I don’t remember approving the comment (when I do and it gets posted, I always reply).

      Very sorry you are struggling, or were. Holidays are the worst time for many, and winter months. Hope things have settled some and you are doing better. Glad you are chatting with friends… the staying up all night (when you are bipolar) not such a great thing – LOL – be careful!

      Melatonin is huge help for me – might want to try it to help you get to sleep when you are wound up. Best, Molly
