Some of the material in this blog may be offensive or sensitive to certain individuals. It is not my intention to offend anyone. At the same time, some may argue that by giving specific details of suicides, murders, self-abuse and so forth, this may "lay the seed" of ideas in ones mind to do likewise. I totally disagree! The opposite is true!

   Bipolar I - (Mores specifically "manic-depression"), and beyond is an illness that I know what I am talking about. It is real. It happens almost every minute of every day. To ignore it will not do anyone any good. I believe that fellow bipolar patients must know that certain thoughts or feelings are not uncommon. It is what we do with those feelings, how we channel them, and how we seek help that puts us above the rest...that my friends...should make us proud.

   Later in the blog I will write of certain things I have done in my life. Major mistakes; very close calls to death. I will also, as hard as it may be, to admit to certain thoughts that that currently entertain my mind during the "mania" phase that I may not be proud of.
