I haven't written much lately as my mood has been more unstable. I've been feeling scattered and have been crying easily. I don't know if it is hypomania, or a mixed episode.... More on that soon, I hope!
Today I found Crazy Mermaid's blog and I have read most of her posts and enjoyed it immensely. Although I don't have a lot in common - I've never had a psychotic episode - it is still helpful to read about her feelings and experiences. The experience of having a mental illness is an experience shared across the entire spectrum of bipolar disorder, despite differences in symptoms and their severity. It helps me to read about what other people are experiencing.
When you have some time to read, be sure to check out all of Crazy Mermaid's blog posts. It is like reading an engrossing book. She writes about her involuntary stay in a psychiatric hospital, about the voices in her head, and her ongoing recovery.
