I assume I’ll post details of why I’m doing this all via blog at some point, so I’ll just give general information here. I’m a 26 year old mom, wife, and professional. That’s a lot to juggle for anyone I think. For me, there’s an extra struggle. I have Bipolar (and a lot of other mood/personality/mental issues). Basically, I’m crazy. Someone somewhere called it “mentally interesting.” Either way.
I was diagnosed at a young age…14 or 15 maybe. My timelines are non-existant so please excuse anything that doesn’t seem right in that regard. It’s not right in my head, so I have no way to tell it correctly. Anyhow, whatever age someone figured it out the bottom line is that I was pretty much born with it. I’ve heard stories about myself at age two and four that were all pretty big red flags.
The amount of information that was out there then versus now is like night and day, but regular life stuff…how to deal with a high energy toddler on a down swing or not be irritable with a temper tantrum on an up swing…how to help a husband understand things you don’t understand…how to work like a normal person…well, I haven’t found anything to help. So here I am. My own little way of sorting that stuff out. Maybe helping other people sort out similar stuff.
I’ll try not to be too moody, but sometimes what can you do? My intent is to talk about serious issues but with a grain of salt and snark. They say keep blogs coherent and I can almost promise that won’t happen. What my mood is, you get. If I’m baselined (normal), which does happen, then you’ll probably just hear my opinions on random stuff. But I’ll do my best to make this readable to someone other than me.
**Disclaimer One** Kira is not my real name and I don’t want to lie and say it is. I’m pretty honest about my varying degrees of crazy with everyone I know, but I do have a career and so some privacy is needed. Plus, I’m super paranoid.
**Disclaimer Two** This idea was 100% a product of hypomania which inevitably means it might be one of those things that lasts a week and is forever forgotten. But hopefully not.
**Disclaimer Three** Blog title is a complete rip off of the song of the exact same name by deadmau5. But it fit, and even at my most creative I can’t title stuff. Sorry, Joel (who I’m sure is totally interested in my crazy nonsense anyway).
