What Bipolar Disorder Really Feels like

This article from the Huffington Post and by Sarah Klein is fantastic!!

I encourage all of you to take time and read it completely.  The cartoons and commentaries make me feel connected to the world and realize that we are more out there and we had the same feelings.

What is a Mood Disorder?

it is two forces in one.

la lluvia


Llueve y estoy en un tunel azul

un sitio oscuro con poca luz

y mis sentidos se adormecen.

Me refugio en mi cueva y escucho llover

el sonido constante del agua me calma

pero ahora – necesito mojarme.


Salgo al patio y siento la lluvia en mis pies

en mi cabeza y en mis manos

Quiero volar como el aracari

quiero transformarme

con la lluvia, con el agua.



From Kay Redfield Jamison


“Children need the freedom and time to play. Play is not a luxury. Play is a necessity.”

“Madness carves its own reality.”

“I wish I could explain it so someone could understand it. I’m afraid it’s something I can’t put into words. There’s just this heavy, overwhelming despair – dreading everything. Dreading life. Empty inside, to the point of numbness. It’s like there’s something already dead inside. My whole being has been pulling back into that void for months.”

I strongly recommend this fantastic book from Dr. Jamison.  This book open my mind and make me feel that I’m not alone!!
