The cliché first blog post

This is my first post on my new blog. I decided to create an anonymous blog after having a blog, which I shared with friends and family. I guess I can look at this as a small step in the wrong direction since it reinforces self-stigma around my bipolar disorder. But I need the anonymity to feel safe posting the thoughts I want to share with the world.


This summer marks my one year anniversary of my first manic episode, hospitalization and official diagnose of bipolar 1 disorder. It has been an unpredictable, insightful and pivotal year. I have learned so much about this illness, myself and have gained a better sense of the world around me. Though I would say I’m mostly stable, I still struggle with various issues that stem from having a serious mental health disorder.


Writing is amazing because it helps people share, connect and heal. I’m excited to have this new blog and I’m excited to write about my journey.

  1. Hi there. I look forward to reading more about your journey as it unfolds. You’re right. Writing about mental illness is often a very cathartic experience. Personally I find it a lot more easier to do than actually talking to family members or friends about it. But then I find I’ve always been better at putting my thoughts on a page than actually vocalising them.
