My story is a work in progress really. I found this board in fall of 2007 and made the acquaintance of some truly beautiful souls who continually support, inspire and accept me as a whole.

I have a diagnosis of being bipolar I with mixed episodes and psychotic features, I've tried a laundry list of meds to treat this but as of Jan 2011 I am still on the look for an actual med combo that will benefit me well. It has also been indicated that I suffer from PTSD, to say my young life was traumatic would be the biggest understatement of the century.

The depressive episodes I encounter tend to become a bottomless downward spiral for me, which when I am there, down in that rabbit hole it is almost impossible to reach me. On the other end of the spectrum is the mania which is at first a welcome respite but unchecked I can get a little...umm...well I'd really rather not say.

I seek friendship here but can be quite extremely shy in real life scenarios, I am a continual work in progress and I hope that one day I'll be able to actually meet and talk to people without fear and wanting to run away and hide!
That said, I am an open-minded, free-spirited individual who loves to write, enjoys reading, loves nature-especially the beach, loves to drive and travel, has 3 beautiful children, 2 happy doggies and 2 moody kitties, lol, Currently live with my boyfriend who is also father to my 3 kids here in (mostly) sunny Southern California.

That's about what I can think of for now ;)
