Welcome to my blog. My Non de Plume is Christine W Forgues. I have been journal writing for years. I took a course in Creative writing and found I enjoy writing short stories and poetry. I write more when I am hypomanic or manic.
I went into Rehab for Alcohol Addictions and have been sober for fourteen years.
Shortly after I quit drinking I was diagnosed with Bipolar 2, I have since been diagnosed with Bipolar 1.
I enjoy talking about my story, for people to learn or relate. I try and have a healthy lifestyle and try to use my coping strategies. Life is just too boring without Bipolar, it is a blessing but yet sometimes a curse.
I am currently working on a book and dream of publishing one day.
I am so excited to have found Wordpress.
This is my new adventure.

Don't Forget Your Meds

Two nights ago I was on the computer, It was about 1:00 am. I started feeling tired so I decided to go to bed. Except I actually didn’t take my meds but only realized that at 3 am. Still not sure if I had taken my pills, I took some […]

The MRI- A Short Story

It was a cold drizzly evening, the rain froze as it made contact on the road and on the parked cars and shimmered in the glow of the street lights. Sammy was getting ready for her MRI for ten-thirty in the evening. Sammy was diagnosed several years ago with Multiple […]

Stay strong

My dear God, I will never un-see what I have just seen. I am not supposed to look or read the news, it is too devastating. My thoughts and prayers go to Australia, their families, their homes, their wildlife, their land. I can’t stop crying. May you be safe. I […]

Reflecting

January 5th, 2020 Wow, I just had a little cry. I saw that I had a new follower on WordPress, so I read a bit of her profile. She struggles with an eating disorder too, but her lengthy post was very positive and made me think about what I am […]
