I learned late in the day that today, March 30, is World Bipolar Day. Being currently in remission, every day feels like a celebration. I feel it’s important to mark the day by being open and forthright, something that’s not always been possible for me personally. I hid my illness for years, or at least thought I did, by not acknowledging it was a part of my life. We’ve come a long way in de-stigmatizing mental illness but parity with physical maladies is still not common place. I’m not going back to the old days of hiding and denial. It feels pretty great to equalize the pressure between my inner world and how I present publicly.
In book news, we’re 84 days out from launch and hopefully right on schedule. Enjoy your evening!
