It’s my one year wedding anniversary today and to say the least, I can’t believe I’ve gotten to this point. The amount of love, caring, and patience that my husband has shown me in immeasurable. I never thought I’d be so happy or even be smiling for the first time. Yes, I have a hard time smiling as it isn’t my normal disposition. I may not do it in pictures on command but I can smile and laugh while I’m with my closest friends, family, and my husband. I just don’t like doing it much since it hurts a lot and whenever I try, I look like I’m smirking evilly.
I’ve stated numerous times that it’s important to be in the public eye when dealing with mental illness, the good and the bad, just so people can understand what is going on. A great site is this one: Fuckyeahbipolarowl . It is basically a meme site but, it also sheds light on the many sides of Bipolar Disorder and is a help site for those that need it. The submitted memes are from people suffering.
