It is so easy to say “I am bipolar”.
It just rolls off the tongue and seems so inconsequential. But it is this kind of statement which contributes to the defintion of who we are, and how we view ourselves.
You are you, not your disorder.
I am Victoria Lynn Frick Miller.
I am creative.
I am compassionate.
I am thoughtful.
I am a sister, a daughter and a life long companion.
I am not bipolar, I have bipolar disorder.
In no way do I consider myself an authority on bipolar or any other mental health issue.
These writings will simply explore my thoughts, reflections and journey as a woman. A woman who just happens to be living with bipolar disorder.
