I have been working on this kit for quite awhile, trying to figure out where I wanted it to go. There are many reasons I made this kit...let me give you all a little back story...

When I was in late 20's I was FINALLY diagnosed with Bipolar disorder. It devastated me in many ways. It made me wonder if I was that stereo typical person who "had" that disorder. It took me awhile to come out of that funk. Through thereapy and everything, I learned that I had the disorder for a very long time but it was either ignored or dismissed by my previous doctor. I can remember being 14, and suffering from a dark depression. Through my teen years I went through many waves of the disorder. I've learned alot in the last few years.

One of those things is, I'm not ashamed. I used to be, as I had worked with a woman who was so severe in her bipolar disorder that she would cause issues at work and had to be fired. For me, telling anyone I had it, was too much. Especially after my mini breakdown. Coming out of all of that, I learned that it's ok if I live with this disorder. I'm not different than  a lot of people. But it's something I had to learn to accept it as it being apart of ME.

So there its, I live with Bipolar disorder along with several other disorders. I live with it every day and it's calmed down some by the medications that I will have to take forever if I want to be "normal" somewhat by societies standards. It's a juggle, finding the right medications for the various issues I have. I still struggle with it, and it's a work in progress.

I encourage people to be more open with it, to not be ashamed and to seek help that is needed. Look to your local crisis center to get you help. Never be ashamed of who you are! Embrace it and look at the brigher side of things.

I went with the direction of dancing fairies I guess you'd call them? LOL The light blue side represents the happier part of teh disorder. how you feel like you can dance and sing. The darker side represents the depression and the sadness. It's a constant battle to regulate the sides and make them co exist. That's what this kit represents, and I hope you all enjoy it and understand the concept.

Ty for reading this and allowing me to share!

  2. Thank you Shani, not only for the kit, but for what you said. I have a daughter with Social Anxiety disorder where it affected her so much that she dropped out of school and spent 8 years in our house not going through normal teen years and it broke my heart. Not because she had it, but because she missed out on a lot because of it and it still affects her to this day. I also have a granddaughter that has several disorders and Bi-polar might be one of them and my daughter has tried to get her diagnosed since she was little as it was getting worse and worse every year, but they tell you, they're too young to be diagnosed, then suddenly they're old enough, but because of their age they can refuse the treatment. It's ridiculous at what my daughter has gone through, trying to get help for her daughter.

    I believe as you do, it's nothing to be ashamed of and we all need to learn more about these disorders as they weren't even named back in the days when even friends of mine had this sort of thing happening to them and it was just called "NERVES".

    The more education the better and learning to live with it and others becoming better informed is the way to go. *S*

    Hugsssssssssssss
    Sassy *S*

    PS - Kit is AWESOME!!!!!!!!!! *S*

  4. Thank you so very much for the kit and for sharing, you know you are not alone! I lived with the disorder for most of my life until I was finally properly diagnosed and have been on the rollercoaster of finding the right meds to control it. I lost every job I ever had because of my disorder and my anxiety, and finally got SSI for it, but it is still an inner struggle all the time. Love you sweetie! ♥

  7. the human brain has a very delicate infrastructure of neuro-chemicals & "mental" illness results from a chemical imbalance, the same way diabetes results from an imbalance in pancreatic functioning; the imbalance is extremely difficult to address in children & adolescence because there is a lot we still don't know about that neuro-chemical balance - my favorite Ziggy cartoon showed him on psychiatrist couch with the doctor saying "you do realize normality is an illusion"

  10. Thank you for this beautiful kit. I was diagnosed with Bipolar disorder and OCD in my early 20's and like you my symptoms were dismissed even in my teenage years. This year I was tired of feeling ashamed and just came out to my friends. I feel better now that I don't have to pretend to be "normal" by their standards. Anyways, thank you for being brave and sharing your story.

  11. I also live with Bipolar disorder and Fragile X Syndrome. I have good days and really bad days. Right now I am on a low. Its not easy but my husband has learned the signs and helps me a lot. Chocolate will help with the depression if it doesnt get too bad. But just know you are not along and its nothing to be ashamed of :)

  12. Thank you for sharing this story and the kit. I have 2 children who have battled this disorder for several years. I have a lot of respect for anyone who has to deal with the ups and downs of this. I know my heart breaks every time my children hit bottom and we have to battle so hard to pull them back from the edge. Thank God for the meds. They help. God be with you sweety. I am going to see what I can do with this amazing kit....
