African Hips Don't Lie

Insanity is relative. It depends on who has who locked in what cage. (Gratitude 20/150)

As most of you know and those who don’t know suspect, I have bipolar disorder. I am not bipolar as bipolar is a not a race and I do not suffer from bipolar disorder. As Billy Connolly says about comedy, I feel similarly about bipolar disorder… it is something that has helped me, but also something that has hindered me.

I read this today (I dont know who the author is) “Just because I could achieve my tasks yesterday, please do not assume that I will be able to do it tomorrow.” – it truly reflects what it is like to be a person living a life of colour, darkest black and rainbow delights. They should make an ice cream like that. 🙂

I am grateful. Always did love an ice cream cone.

  1. 10.Thou shalt not send people crazy e-mails at odd hours of the night.

    I need to repeat this one to myself 25 times … you must see what I leave on forums, and then read the next morning and die a little ….. but I then can’t bring myself to “delete” the comment or statement.

    I also have decided to hide my phone from myself after a certain time – something about wine + sleeping pills + texting goes down a lead balloon!


  2. These ten commandments are something that I would consider giving to people who don’t have a Bipolar disorder.
    I am one of these people,

    Love you Wenchy
