    I Am NOT Bipolar

    You see, Bipolar Disorder is a medical condition. I'm a person. But now that you mention it, I do happen to have the medical condition of Bipolar Disorder II. You don't say, "Poor John, I hear he is cancer." I am not Bipolar; I have Bipolar. I will not be reduced to a judged...

    Chemo And Hearing Voices

    I'm a cancer survivor. :) I had stage 2 cancer. After this I had to go to the psych ward of several occasions. The psych said the chemo may have given me a chemical imbalance in my brain. I don't hear voices, but a voice that torments me day and night. I can't find medicine that...

    Admire Yourself

    This is something I read in a book lately and it left a real impression on me. It's very simple, but powerful especially for someone with a low self esteem like me. It just talked about the fact that one should admire himself if he wants others to admire him. It doesn't mean to...

    A True Story..inspiring To Me..maybe Sometimes Things Are Really That Simple

    Last year because of some chemical imbalances I spent 72 hours in a behavioral unit at a hospital. I met a young man that was one of the saddest people I have ever seen. He just sat in a corner all day and cried. He had no family and was to be sent to a group home. It became...
