At age 63, I discovered that my life-long depression and anxiety could be described by at least two major diagnoses: Bipolar 2 and Generalized Anxiety Disorder (as well as Panic Disorder and PTSD). Almost immediately I knew that bringing my story to others who deal with significant mental illnesses and those who love and care for them would become an important part of my own healing. I hoped that this would contribute to others' healing as well. This did not come easily. Eventually, I came to terms with "going public" about my own illness and this blog is a major part of that journey.
