In 2017, I went into psychosis, was hospitalized, and diagnosed with Bipolar Disorder. I lived 40 years of my life unaware that I had a mental illness. Yet, when I look back, it seems incredibly obvious. From emotional highs to suffering through deep depression, the signs were there.
The Bipolar Puppet allows me to tell my story. I share my journey through writing, singing and puppets who represent the parts of me that deal with depression, mania, self-importance, self-loathing, spirituality, anxiety, guilt, weight and so much more. They provide me a healthy outlet to express the things I experience while living with this disorder.
It is my hope, that anyone who may suffer with similar issues, will understand that they are not alone.
A huge thank you goes out to all those who support me on a daily basis. It's because of you that I'm able to be a voice for others.
