Availability: Ready to download

I’ve had depression for as long as I can remember, but it wasn't until I had my son (at 36) that I was hospitalized for psychosis and was diagnosed with a host of mental illnesses, including anxiety, bipolar disorder, depression, panic disorder, and OCD. Only then did I begin writing poetry. It’s the only way I could see fit to write about mental illness because of the co I’ve had depression for as long as I can remember, but it wasn't until I had my son (at 36) that I was hospitalized for psychosis and was diagnosed with a host of mental illnesses, including anxiety, bipolar disorder, depression, panic disorder, and OCD. Only then did I begin writing poetry. It’s the only way I could see fit to write about mental illness because of the complexities involved. It’s my way to express the raw, fleeting feelings I’m experiencing after being diagnosed, while trying to manage daily life. It's my creative way of describing the strong experiences of pain, insomnia, madness, and healing that come along with mental illness. This chapbook of “bipolar poetry” describes the difficulty I've had putting my bipolar diagnosis into words. Even the feelings about mental illness contained in this book seem confusing at times, but that’s because it’s confusing to live and thrive with mental illness (to put it lightly).
