    Wasn’t sure where to post this, either here or in the mental health group since it can be placed in either one.

    I’m the type that likes to learn about conditions I have and so I do a lot of reading on bipolar disorder just so I can understand it and so I can see how other people experience it too.

    These are the books I’ve collected over the…Read More

  • As for my current read, I’m reading ‘Touched with Fire’. Even though they’ve always said that creativity was linked to bipolar disorder, Kay Redfield Jamison was one of the first to write about it. It was published in 1993 but the book is still relevant today and is one that is highly talked about in the bipolar community.

    I’ve always…Read More

  • Just curious but do any of you annotate your books?

    I find it to be so fun. Sure it takes longer to finish a book because of it but I find them to be personal journals. All these notes you make and then years later you can look back and be like, oh that’s what I thought back then and so forth. I love it.

    Anyone tab too?

  • On another note, I finally freed myself of some people who have tied me down.

    There are these girls whom I’ve known since I was 14 (we’re now in our early 30s). Knowing each other for over half our lives is a pretty big deal but once they started to have families things changed.

    Our relationship became more strained during the jail…Read More

      • that’s kind of the hard part. the situation feeling like a breakup. I mean we’ve known each other since we were all 14 so for it to end like this is both heartbreaking and also liberating. I tried to keep the friendship together but in the end, I just couldn’t do it anymore. It’s sad but I finally feel like I can move forward and not hold back…Read More

  • Haven’t posted in a while because my depression has been off the charts lately. Pretty easy when my life hasn’t turned out well. Haven’t worked since Covid. Still haven’t but at least now I have something new to focus on.

    Something good happened for a change. It’s been a very long time since I’ve been this excited over something. I can’t…Read More

    • That’s amazing, congrats! I was going to sign up for college but like an idiot I missed the deadline to apply so I have to wait till winter and go in the spring. I’m hoping to get into environmental science and do some music stuff on the side. Eventually I might think about going into music therapy, I heard lots of things about it, and it’…Read More

      • Music therapy sounds pretty cool. I’ve heard stuff like that works as well. Heck just listening to music alone helps a lot.

    • That’s awesome Ronnie!!

About Me

Ronnie

Shy and quiet reader. Shy and quiet writer.

Aside from being a fangirl, I am an avid reader to the extreme.  I converted an old bedroom into a library so much of my time is spent in it.  I read a variety of genres but my main genre is Non-Fiction and a sub-genre of Native American studies.

My top 3 books of all time:

  1. Speak by Laurie Halse Anderson
  2. Into the Wild by Jon Krakauer
  3. The Mists of Avalon by Marion Zimmer Bradley
