Me. Today. Psychology for laughs
My answer was always, "Who cares! Can you just fix it?"
Here is what my text book says about creativity and known people who have Bipolar disorder.
Creativity and Bipolar disorder:
There are many creative artists, composers, writers, and musical performers with bipolar disorder, including Catherine Zeta-Jones, Virginia Wolf, Samuel Clemens ( Mark Twain) and Tim Burton, Madeleine L'Engle wrote in A Circle Of Quiet, : All the people in history, literature, art whom I admire: Mozart,Shakespeare,Homer, El Greco, St John, Chekhow, Gregory of Nyssa, Dostoevsky, Emily Bronte;
NOT ONE OF THEM WOULD QUALIFY FOR A MENTAL HEALTH CERTIFICATE!
I know who cares? Just make the suffering and pain go away. I don't know about you but I don't fit into the famous artist category, but I am exploring my love for writing. It is what it is, but it made me laugh. I guess we are in good company. Going to a bipolar support group with the above gang would be rather humors. I'm starting to laugh about my life and have some joy in the unique way that the Lord has designed me.
This week I spoke with a gal who is struggling with her bipolar diagnosis. I've been there and for me it's been a journey of acceptance. I'm twenty years into my journey and still want it all to just go away. But it is real, here and I'm in good company.
I hope you know that you are too.
