Bipolar first reared it’s ugly head when I moved away from home to university, where I lasted 6 weeks before severe depression took over. My first hypomanic episode was diagnosed about 3 years later.
My New Perspective.
However I have always believed that I have symptoms of Borderline Personality Disorder and have issues with Social Anxiety and Panic Disorder!! Because of the overwhelming number of diagnoses we could possibly have, I now believe it is more beneficial to look at each individual’s symptoms as a whole, rather than as clusters which can be identified as a particular disorder. As far as I am concerned now, I have an emotional disorder with very high sensitivity!!
But I don’t believe that we are incarnated here on earth to suffer with these disorders- but to instead look at the messages therein. Perhaps we are learning to outgrow old karmic family patterns or serving individual karma. Perhaps we are just different and are showing the world that it’s OK to need peace and a quiet life and indulge in our creative dreams.
Time For Change.
2012 became the year I quit a job that was contributing to a big increase in Bipolar symptoms and found my passion for spiritual development. I’m on a new journey of self-love, forgiveness and acceptance, to discover who the real me is and figure out how I can contribute meaningfully to the world.
I am also nurturing my creative self by revisiting my love of drawing, please see my gallery.
With the help of Spirit I am growing stronger and stronger and believe that by working with Spirit, I can be of help to others who have had similar experiences to me. I am 100% passionate about promoting spiritual healing as a solution to mental health issues.
