In the year before being diagnosed bipolar I was traumatised by manic episodes and psychiatric ward admissions.  Despite having the support of family and friends I felt deeply confused, lost and alone.

There was a strong desire within me to connnect with others who understood first hand what I was going through.  But, around me everyone seemed to be successful and healthy.  So I turned to books.  Reading them and trying to write them.  I started to read self help, fiction, memoirs and testimonials.  I joined a writing class and despite my overwhelming nerves I wrote and read my work which all related to my struggles.  I started to research on the internet and discovered a variety of celebrities who shared my experiences.  Suddenly I felt connected to a world of other wounded hearts and minds.

Moving on since my diagnosis of Bipolar, things are finally starting to move forward.  The fog is slowly lifting.  As it does, I decided I would like to create a space where the thoughts and feelings; catastrophes and triumphs, of all of us in this world, battling with our own selves, could be shared.

I hope the voices within these pages provide you with whatever you were looking for when you came to find them.  I hope the act of writing and sharing your stories can be a step in your journey towards peace and contentment.
