No More Crutch

IMG_2327In 1995 I was diagnosed with Bipolar Disorder. Before my diagnosis I used to abuse drugs and alcohol to escape the symptoms of an illness that didn’t have a name.

When I was diagnosed, I started writing to keep track of my feelings and thoughts. This book is a collection of these writings which took place from the early years of my ongoing recovery.

Looking at a weakness could be looked at like a test. A weakness can be transformed to an incredible strength. I’ve found if you use your weakness as a gift, it can turn out to be a blessing in disguise.


     Time to come together,

No more fear from the differences.

     It’s all the same.

Come out of your shells.

     Confront your fears.

Out of Darkness, I will shine.


Through ups and downs,

comes adversity.

Through adversity,

Comes wisdom.

Through wisdom,

Comes prosperity.
