I just wanted to share with you and I am so excited about this guys, lol yes it's true folks yours truly has decided to write a book called The darkest hour living with Bi Polar, it was put to me by my case worker a few months ago and I had put it out of my mind, as I didn't think I would be good enough and after a long hard think about it I decided to do it , I don't know if I will get it published yet or not I guess I will get the thing written and then see where I need to go from there , its very hard to write about your own life and how it all came about I have already done 2 chapters and on my 3rd oh holly crap what have I gotten myself into it's a real challenge that's for sure , and for those that suffer this illness will know that there is not much out there that deals with this, yes there are medical journal's out there I find that if you don't understand the medical side of things it is hard not knowing the unknown . it's for this reason and a whole lot of others too that I am doing this, I hope it will show people that there is light at the end of the tunnel and things do get better so I hope my book will make a difference I am using fictional people as I don't want nor need a law suit on my hands even tho what I am saying is the truth but you know how it is ....
Good for you, Shaunna! Make Mark spell check it for you! After all, you don't want your work confused with Zu's.
lol yeah I ahve have spell ckhe check no on micro soft word lol
very cool idea shaunna, i applaud you...
yeah your right about people who have no idea.. especially when they dont even understand what people with bi polar suffer with daily.
They have no clue at all, and never will.
keep up the good work.
hell, you can even use me as case study, with over 12 years experience with the illness... do i qualify? lol
It'll be a bestseller!
BTW, Both of my sons and my sister suffer from Bi Polar .
yeah you would kit, lol
hehehe who knows lol, I just hope it will help those that need it
yeah its a horrible thing to live with but with the right meds and support it helps, it's not a cure but knowing that the meds and support are there that is important I guess I am lucky in so many ways I have the support of starkers (Mark) and my loving family here and those that are around me
That you do.
Yeah, I'll speel chekc it adn I'll crrorect her dickshun as wlle. I maen, we d'not wnat it rildded wiht mitsakes, do we.
As fer you, m' dear, good on ye fer takin' on tha challenge.
well it has been something that I had in the pipe line for a few months, and I thought "nah your kidding me, me write a book " I just laughed at the idea and put it off, and now look at me I am on my way to writing a book about me and my life and how it was that I got Bi Polar hence the name The Darkest Hour living with Bi Polar
Good luck with it Shaunna. Writing a book isn't the easiest thing to do but once done......WOW! With mine...I've gone through four revisions already and still need to put things in the proper perspective. My problem is the one finger typing. Slow as well...you know. lol
yep I sure do lol , I am only on my first draft at the moment but it is coming together nicely and yeah I do need to go through it and probably need to do the same thing I will be showing my case worker on the 9th August just to get some feed back and, starkers has been helping me with some ideas on how to put things together as well, I am only half way through my primary school days at the moment but its good , but hell it brings back some bad memories of stuff that I put away and not thought of until I was told I had Bi Polar but I need to get this out there and to show people that yeah there is a light at the end of the tunnel and life will get a bit better it's a one day at a time thing
I worked right next to a guy with Bi-Polar and he was a good worker. He told me as long as he takes his pills hes normal. Also my daughter is bi-polar. Shes a bitch when she runs out of pills. Can't sleep and argues. You don't have to have it to know about it. Good luck with the book.
Excellent Shaunna glad you decided to write your book.
The more info about Bi-polar that the layman/woman can understand the better!
Yep thats it, thats me too I am a real bitch if I miss 1 or 2 of my pills and then god help those around me. thanks wom I will be glad when it is finished tho,
yes that is so true Quicksilver
I'll get one!
A couple of years ago I couldn't afford my meds (couldn't afford anything and lived on handouts for that matter) and in a manic stage wrote 170,000 words over about four days that became my fiction book series "Ethaia". It is published online using a system of self publishing called "print on demand". There are several services to look into if you are interested. The one I use is owned by Amazon. I think I use my quiet little pretend world as a place to hide and be still, but I'll not go there here.
Go, girl, go. I think anyone who is bipolar or depressed should pick a subject and dive in. By writing you learn a little bit about yourself with each page.
Thanks buddy, yeah I am finding now that it's bringing back old feelings, and stuff that I hadn't thought of in ages cos I thought I dealt with it , but it is coming on real good tho, I am taking a break from it, as I am half way through my 2nd chapter. I will have to check that out thanks for the tip tho
I have just been doing some more work on my book and holy crap the things that have happened to me I think it may be a Guinness book of records or something it is so hard to put things in order and then remember how you got there in the first place talk about open up old wounds . but it's what happened I needed to explain. starkers has been a great help
