I'm an ambitious, young author who wants to share her work with the world. I was diagnosed with bipolar disorder, anxiety and fibromyalgia when I was 19, and I want to break the stigma surrounding mental illness by talking openly about my illness. I do so without a photo of myself, because I am not ready for my family and friends to know about this. I am not ashamed, I am just not emotionally ready for them to find out. But I do want to share my experiences, and let you know that you are not alone.
I intend to share not only my own experiences, but also that of others. I want to tell so-called normal people what it’s like to live with mental illness, how hard life can get sometimes, and raise awareness in general.
Though, sometimes I want to share my written short stories or ideas as well. My writing is how I express myself.
Personal information about me:
I’m a 24-year-old woman, studying to become a teacher and child psychologist, with a dream to become a great writer. I am also an avid horror fan, Barbie doll collector and music fan. That sentence should tell you that I am an odd one, but a lovable one. My favourite colour is green, I love crazy socks and I’m a geek.

Living with bipolar disorder is a nightmare, living with any mental illness is a nightmare. Here is what it is like for me.
