Monday is Mental Illness Survivor Day!

We need to celebrate us! We are all strong and we are all…

SURVIVORS!

  1. If you are a bipolar disorder survivor or any type of mental illness survivor, please add the name and link to your blog in my comment section and I will add your blog name, link and your comments on my page each Monday and will then permanently keep them listed on my blog making them available for everyone to read, enjoy and learn from.
  2. Also, I will add a link on the top of my page to click on so that all the bipolar disorder and mental illness survivor blog names and links on my list will always be available to you if you ever want to visit that blog. I hope eventually we will get a long list.
  3. There is a star on the right side of my page to click on so that you can see and read the bipolar disorder and mental illness survivor stories and comments shared along with their blog names and links as well.
  4. Please post a comment about your story and journey of being a bipolar disorder survivor or any other type of mental illness survivor or any other information  you want to add. Write as much information as you want to share.
  5. I want to compile a list of all blogs written about bipolar disorder and any other type of mental illness.
  6. It will be a very enjoyable, interesting and valuable list for myself and for everyone to have of all the blogs and bloggers that share their stories and journeys and other important and valuable information about living with bipolar disorder and any other types of mental illness.
  7. Copy this link from my page and paste it to your page… so we can get as many bloggers as possible to see this. Hopefully they will add their name and link of their blog so I can add it to my list.

Thank  you very much. I truly appreciate it.

I hope it will be awesome for all of us.

I am very excited to see what happens with this.

Hugs and blessings to all of you always and forever.

  1. A wonderful idea! 🙂 ❤ I was diagnosed with bipolar disorder in March of 2014. I will never forget the day I walked into the doctor's office, finally fed up with my life and on the verge of suicide…the doctor asked me if I wanted to kill myself or had a plan to kill myself..I told her –

    "No, I don't truly want to die, I just don't want to live like this anymore." That would be truly be the turning point in my life and when I would finally start to heal many years of abuse, especially self abuse. I am happy to say that where I am now in my life is nowhere near where I was before. In part, I have my blog to thank for that. It gave me an outlet to navigate the ins and outs of the disorder as well as connect and relate with others going through the same thing. When I look back I wonder how I am still here. God is truly good. ❤

    My father was diagnosed with bipolar disorder but refused treatment and therapy….he didn't believe that he needed it. My brother also lives with bipolar disorder. He was diagnosed before me and when it was my turn, he was there for me every step of the way. We have a better relationship now than we ever had before and I couldn't be more thankful ❤

    I think what you are doing here is great and I am glad I get to share and celebrate
    Mental Illness Survivor Day! I had no idea there was such a day so I am happy I crossed paths with you today 🙂

    Thanks again for giving us an opportunity to share our stories with you here. ❤

    Take Care & God Bless ❤

    • Thank you for sharing your story. You are very strong. My dad also has bipolar but also refuses to accept it and it caused him to be very abusive to all of us. I do forgive him now. I am sorry… honestly there is no actual Mental illness survivor day. I made it up to start on out blogs and for all of us bloggers because we are all survivors and I want to celebrate all of us and get together more on our sites. It is so therapeutic for all of us. Hugs dear and thank you for your inspiring and beautiful story. ❤

  2. I’ve suffered with anxiety since I was 15, was never medicated I controlled it myself. When I had my son in 2012 I had PPD bad so my PCP put me on an anti anxiety/depression med to help. Well about 18 months later I decided to go off my meds myself and I went manic and my PCP put me in the funny house, not so fun. I was there 12 days, and diagnosed bipolar anxiety depression I was put on like 10 diff meds. We lived with family for 5 months to help me with my son while my husband worked and I was in out patient therapy. So 2 yrs later 2016 I’m on 3 physic meds a migraine med and thyroid med. and experienced a concussion on top. I’ve my good days and bad days fighting depression but never never do I ever give up the good fight!!!!

      • Thank you for your kind words. I appreciate them very much. Yes we all need to remember how strong we are. I figure where ever you are in your diagnosis with this illness you are very strong and resilient and deserve tons of credit and praise!!! You are a survivor. We are sometimes not given enough credit because people do not understand what we go through daily minute by minute.

    • I think so many of us have similar stories. That is why I love this blogging community and wanted to get more of us together on one site to make it easier for all of us to connect. I too had psd and that is when my illness became very severe. Later I was diagnosed with bpd. I also went off all medication and went manic and went through horrific experiences because of it. Thanks for sharing your story. I appreciate it. I am working on getting everything up and running and with posting and then adding links to my side page. It is coming soon. Just starting this so I want to make sure I do it right and well for everyone. Thanks again for sharing your story. You are a strong and wonderful person. Hugs and blessings.
