dyane reblogged this on Birth of a New Brain and commented:

        I want to thank my writing mentor Wendy K. Williamson for writing this wonderful review of my book! I only paid her five bucks to do it! ;) If it wasn't for Wendy, I don't know if my book would have been "born!" I'm forever grateful to this intrepid writer for her encouragement, humor, and wisdom.Wendy's belief that my writing was good enough to share with others truly kept me going. Be sure to check out her two books I'm Not Crazy Just Bipolar (an outstanding memoir that was ahead of its time) and Two Bipolar Chicks Guide to Survival (which I wish I had to read in 2007 when I was diagnosed); please follow her blog & Twitter too @bipolarwendy. Wendy has some amazing blog posts - one of my favorites is her post called "Go Ahead Writer": https://wendykwilliamson.wordpress.com/2014/12/31/go-ahead-writer/ Once again, Wendy, thank you. I'll always be in your debt unless I win the California SuperLotto Plus jackpot - in that case, I'll build a writer's colony and name it the Wendy K. Williamson Center for the Literary Arts. It will have a cafe called "Diner Girl," a bookstore heavily stocked with her books, and I'll give you a million dollar stipend! How does that sound? (I wish I could do that!!) Xo, Dyane

Out of Touch

I realise I have been absent lately and apologies for that. Once again life happened, well, more like once again I became so completely wrapped up in something that all else fell to the wayside. 447 more words

Let me off this roller coaster! Please!!!

What I feel like everyday: (Living with bipolar)

Imagine your on a roller coaster, and you can’t get off. Imagine your strapped in, scared to death, and they won’t stop the ride to let you off.. 747 more words


Depression, You are a Parasite


You are a parasite,

Sucking the life right out of me, and spilling all your poisonous intentions straight into my bloodstream.

I am your host, but don’t get too comfortable here. 133 more words

I've had a relapse and I didn't recognise it

Mondays are therapy days for me. I start the week with a wringing, a venting, a draining, a regaining. I start with talking about all the things I need sorted, and after 45 minutes of talking about random things, I get to the thing that’s hurt me the most. 1,268 more words
