"Six Feet Under" was on. It had been one of my favorite shows, before the coma, but now I was having a hard time looking at the screen. There was a body on the gurney and tubes were draining the blood from it while others replaced the blood with, I assume, formaldehyde. Our children were asleep in their bedrooms, probably dreaming about their birthdays that were just a few days away. Our daughter would be turning eleven and our son would be turning six. The show ended and my husband kissed me goodnight and went to bed, he had work in the morning.
This past week I met one of the many, many patients that stream through the hospital. I haven’t been able to stop thinking of this person since my eyes first saw the confused, delusional, unsettled eyes that looked through me as we met.
As I participated in the care of this patient, I realized and verbalized to the younger physician and nurses in the room with me, ”This person was just like us at one point—a job, “regular” living habits, deciding what to eat, when to eat, deciding how to live life—this person did all those things just like we do now.” It was a gut-wrenching revelation. It’s not the first time I’ve had it, but this week, that thought worked its way deeper into my heart than in previous times.

A first housewarming may intimidate you at first, but here’s a list of all the things you’ll need to have to be set.
I just got back from traveling long distance to my grandmother's funeral. When you have lost a spouse, funerals are not a easy. They bring back so many emotions and memories, yet I felt compelled to go to comfort my grandpa and my mother. I was expecting it to be hard, but it was a sweet and tender experience to be there. One that taught me that miracles still occur....
Wally can't help but wonder about all the shootings of unarmed African-American teens, of late. "I don't know how most white people feel about them," he said. "But for me, it's real creepy." And citing the many police shootings and beatings of unarmed black people across the nation, "It's starting to seem like more than random events and may be informal, but very organized."

I was diagnosed with bipolar disorder in 2007 and started this blog in 2008. I’m still not sure why I started it, but whatever the reason, it became a big deal to me – a very big deal.

I was excited by the number of people, both online and offline who asked questions. They wanted to learn more and to understand. I felt obligated to blog nearly every day. It seemed like everything I said or did revolved around this blog. Does that mean that being bipolar is all that I am?

Was there a sport you played growing up?
