Hi there.

May my story help you find and tell yours.

The Creative and Spiritual Experience of Bipolar Disorder

The Creative and Spiritual Experience of Bipolar Disorder

If only we could control it; let us sleep.

In 2013 I was diagnosed with Bipolar Disorder; fortunately, I already had a life insurance policy or I’d be out of luck for life. Most suicides are by those diagnosed or suspected to have Bipolar Disorder.

Most people I have met or read about experience Bipolar differently than me. They have at least some lows, and most have extreme lows with few manic episodes.

My version is only manic; the experience has been entirely creative and spiritual.

I’m now in long-term remission, more than five years without a manic episode.

I told my story at a Startup Storytellers event in 2016:
