Riding the Wave ... And the Trough

I am mentally ill, diagnosed with Bipolar Disorder I, OCD, ADHD, PTSD and a vitamin B12 deficiency (a key element in brain development). For over 12 years, I took anywhere from 5-8 psychotropic meds each day, and have been recently giving myself a monthly injection of B12.

In January 2012 I was hospitalized for depression, and management of my currrent med cocktail. Immediately all but two of my meds were discontinued and, after a few weeks of adjustment, and some near hospitalizations, things seem to be going much better.

I have been on permanent disability since January 2010, and am adjusting to life on a very limited income.

My prayer is that in walking with me during the ups and downs of Bipolar Disorder, you might find solace, and benefit through my experiences.

Submitting Letters to Some Major Publications

I've spent quite a bit of time over the past two weeks trying to summarize my experience as a bipolarpastor. Once it's ready I plan to submit it to some of the major publications, focusing on Christianity and mental-health publications. I'm tired of talking about my situation without at least trying to do something.
I've been blogging at this site for quite a while, and I'm still not exactly sure how to best market it, or get it out to those who need to follow it. I'll keep reading up on it, and trying different things. I think one of the best and easiest approaches is to contact webistes that deal with mental health issues, and ask them to ad a link to my blog. It is specialized, and covers an area that isn't covered yet. That's probably the best thing to do.
