Throw Some Glitter, Make it Rain……Movin’ Up!

YAY!!!!!!!!!!!!  Yesterday, the official announcement was made that I am partner in the website Ask A Bipolar!!!!!!!!!!!!!   Totally unexpected that the announcement was made and I was absolutely not even prepared for it!  It was super exciting though and its such a great honor to be part of that website.   The people who have benefitted from it (including me) have really made all of the hard word totally and completely worthwhile!!!!

I have to admit, I was nervous about how others at AaB would feel about it.  I mean, so many others have been there for a lot longer than I have, and I hope no one thinks that I just swooped in and took anything that they were part of.  Call me paranoid, but in the past, I have had many people become angry at me for situations such as this, where I didn’t even know they had the end result in their own plans!!   SOOO, I was very nervous about the reception of the announcement, when, and if, it ever arrived.  But it was so well recieved and everyone seem genuinely excited, so I feel a whole lot better!!!!!!

I really am excited to happy to be such an big part of Ask A Bipolar.  It has changed so many aspects of my life and opened so many doors for me, many I didn’t think were possible.  If you had told me 5 years ago, while I was in the hospital, that I would be not just writing, but PARTNER in a website called Ask A Bipolar that reaches out to others just like you and their friends and family, I never would have believed you.  If you had said, “Oh yea, and by the way, you are going to get to interview your favorite author (besides MB, but I didn’t know MB then) who’s books basically saved you from yourself, and whom you have always wanted to meet, Marya Hornbacher, AND you will be blogging for an international organization”  I would have laughed you out the door.  I could have never dreamed of this.  Yet, here it is and I’m so excited for all the work this website has done and all the help it has given to so many people out there that have really needed it and have been as lost as I have been at points in my life.


AND, I would like to thank MB for having enough faith and trust in me to be her partner in crime!!!!!!  AND to the rest of AaB for showing their enthusiasm and their support  for me!!!!!  This next year for AaB is going to TOTALLY ROCK!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Since we know I love music, here is a song.  I had sooooo many I wanted to put here, but this song describes what I feel AaB has done for me.  I has saved me from myself.  It has kept me me going when I thought all was lost.  I was really what I needed to help me in my recovery and as part of my support system.
