I've never done something like a livejournal before. Honestly, the idea of a public journal always seemed a bit oxymoronic. But when keeping a real journal I'd inevitably have to face the fact that I wished someone else were there reading along as I wrote it with something to say. I guess I'll start with a little about me. Approximately four years ago I was diagnosed with bipolar 1 disorder and generalized anxiety. I was nineteen. Bipolar is all encompassing and can be incredibly isolating. I'm looking for others who can personally relate to the experiences which otherwise baffle or serve to discomfort those without firsthand accounts of their own.
