Mental - Emerson vs Bipolar - the intro

Updated: Sep 3, 2022

I am mental. I've got the medical papers and prescriptions to prove it.

Keywords: Bipolar, Anxiety, PTSD, ADHD - Neurodivergent Creative.

This is not a blog for the faint of heart. This is not a blog to read while the kids are around. I curse. I can be raw and painful. I am not pulling punches. This is real, my life. Ugly truths and all. I have obsessions, I have addictions that are not substances, I have impulse control issues, I am mentally ill and all that that includes. It can be ugly but it can also be beautiful. I create beautiful things and I create ugly things. I create to create. I've got a stock pile of crap that's pretty no one wants because no one buys art anymore. Paintings, Photographs, Mixed Media Pieces. I am out of space and soon will be forced to destroy work, that or goodwill it.

Why should you grab a ticket for the ride?

Because I am a sarcastic delight with a side of mental illness. I am sane, but just crazy enough to add zest to life. Do not get me wrong - I am medication compliant, so if you are looking for a sympathetic shoulder while you go unmedicated and spiral out of control, that's not me. I am harsh, the truth can hurt, but it can also set you free. I work recovery from bipolar as I would any medical condition. I poke fun at shit, because this is hard, and laughter makes it a bit more bearable.

I have no idea what will happen here...

I am a neurodivergent creative soul who has mental illness. I am blogging to give a voice to those that can't write it out. I am going to use the privilege of access and state the truth of mental illness. I am going to use my anonymity to highlight parts that need to the light. You know, kinda like shining the light on a cockroach in the dark under the dumpster fire that is life currently.

I'd love to have you subscribe to see what shit I get into and out of. I am unpredictable in my predictability. I do promise to be real and that can be gorgeous somedays and ugly as fuck the next.

This is not a light post, and therefore not a light episode. Please be aware as I do not want to hurt others. Pain as I have never felt before. My child is in pain. Cracky is suffering and in turn so

Motherhood is weird. Meet my mini. This is a conversation between myself and my oldest child. This weeks isn’t a blog so much as an introduction to life with myself as a mom. My child’s online persona

Heavy. Trauma. Mothers. A birthday like every other birthday, one with childhood traumas and bad memories. Where did the hurt come from, how did it become so heavy and maybe it'll help to talk though
