This is a blog about bipolar disorder from a family's point of view.
There are three different views when it comes to someone who has a mental illness: The perception of the person with the disorder, observations from family and friends, and the interpretation from a doctor. Our posts represent our experiences.

I have suffered a great loss. Someone
who is important to me has left my life. My heart breaks at the thought that I
will never see this person again. Precious memories are all that I have left.
Already, the details of our special moments together are fading.
It is difficult to know that I can no
longer reach out to the person that I have shared many private aspects of my
is a struggle to find the strength to move on. I think about this person all the time.
Without this person, I feel alone. I wish I could turn back time and be with this person again.I
sometimes want to live in the past and regain what we had
together. I don't know if I can leave the past behind and move on.I know that it is impossible to revisit what is now gone. I feel as if I have experienced the loss of someone
I loved to death. Bipolar disorder has touched many
events in my life. During certain times I have felt intense joy. Other times I
have felt deep sadness. The loss of that person that brought cherished
memories has caused me great pain. One day when I reminisce about my experiences
I will no longer feel the pain of losing those memories that I hold close to my
heart. I hope I will never forget my past; for I would not be the same person I
am today without them.
