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.

Speaking Out: Gifts of Ministering Undeterred by Disabilities

... FINALLY ...

An anthology of 25 stories by pastors who have been, and continue to live with, disabilities ... physical, emotional and psychological.

This information has never before been made available in any form. Actually, this is the first forum of any kind where pastors openly shared their stories.

If you care about your pastor, if you care about the ministry, if you have considered your own call to the ministry, this is a must read. For not every pastor was born with a disability, many were developed later in life.

You owe it to yourself and your pastor to check out this link:

It is available for purchase in soft cover, or download through your Kindle.

Enjoy, and may your eyes be opened enough to open those around you!
