My Photo
My name is Cassie, I am a 32 year old woman who has bipolar disorder, mother of 3, auntie, lover, sister, daughter and friend. Can be funny, serious, responsible, irresponsible, outgoing yet shy, happy and sad. Nutty, whacky, quirky and well just me. I have lived with bipolar affective disorder all my adult life, and suffered from childhood depression for as long as I can remember. My aim is to raise awareness about this disorder so the vulnerable don't have to suffer in silence, like I had to for many years.

I have created a new website

Hi everyone,

I have not posted in such a very long time. This is why:

I facilitate another new facebook page: Global Mental Health Awareness. This covers information about all mental health disorders, treatment options and coping techniques. With the great success from this I decided to write and design a new website.

At the moment I am writing 3 websites, one of which is a redesign of this blog. I am writing alongside the global mental health awareness name to raise added awareness about bipolar disorder too.

I have nearly finished writing these websites.

As soon as I have I will post details.

From me to you take care, stay safe, and be happy xxx

Self-help techniques

Some people can manage their symptoms through using "alternative" therapy which I like to call self-help techniques. Whilst for others our symptoms are so extreme that we have to use medication as well as self-help techniques. Everyone is different what works for one may not work for another. You can access my site for more articles and video's.

Common issues with medication

It can take some people years to find the right "cocktail" of meds, it has taken me 3 years!!!!. Unfortunately treatment is not an exact science and what works for one may not work for another.
