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.
