    I'm new here!

    Hi, my name is Sonya, and I'm here because my son was diagnosed with bipolar 1 last November. He was away from home for his first year in college.

    Lately I've been thinking of jumping a high building or anything high.. I don't think I'm gonna do it but it's the urge of doing it.
    Does it consider a suicidal thought ! Just a thought? I don't know anymore

    An Open Letter To Anyone That Is Struggling (Including Myself)

    We all struggle at some point whether it be with mental illness or physical health problems. This is just a sad fact of life but the good news is that we are stronger than what is in front of us. Sure our health problems may never go away but don't let that discourage you from reaching your goals and dreams. You are just as special as anyone else and just as capable even if you have limitations. There is something that makes each of us unique.

    If you're struggling with negative or anxious thoughts like I am then take a breath and acknowledge it. The more you acknowledge it the less power it seems to have over you. Sometimes our thoughts are misleading …. They can only be guided by emotion. This is okay so long as we are willing to work with it. Struggling does not make you less than, it makes you human!

    We are all on this journey of life together and our struggles possess the ability to teach us things. Some lessons are hard to face while others come quite easily.

    The point is, you are stronger and more capable than you give yourself credit for. I sometimes downplay my accomplishments but I shouldn't. Neither should you. If you got out of bed today-good. If you ate-good. If you went to work-good. Every little accomplishment deserves attention no matter how small. By celebrating our victories we validate ourselves and we deserve that. Our feelings and situations are valid even if others don't think so.

    What I am saying is: YOU GOT THIS! Whatever life throws at you is not impossible to deal with. So go out there and shine like the brilliant person you are because that's what the world needs, more people like you. I believe in you…and yes I believe in myself…most of the time, but reading this post really invigorated and empowered me.

    As always please stay safe and reach out for help if you need to.

    Making a return

    Hello! I'm not new, but I'm making a return. My name is Amanda and I am hard of hearing as well as have bipolar I disorder and ADHD. Just started the process to go back to school for a Master in Social Work and become a licensed clinical social worker. Also working on a certificate in poetry therapy. Kay Redfield Jamison is my hero!
