Christie F.

Welcome to my blog. 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.

Open Mic Aug. 2021

I am on top of the world. I watch my video over and over. Thursday was an incredible night. Only my third time with this group of guys and did my first 3 song set, with no lyrics. So my background in singing is karaoke as I have mentioned before […]

Role Model – July 16th

She comes out of her brown and beige travel van with curtains in the window. The speakers are set up and after some fine-tuning, they start their set. A beautiful girl with a beautiful voice and whose partner is so nice; I was tongue-tied when he actually asked me a […]

My Bright Moon

What’s new about my Moon?  June 2nd, 2021 I kid you not. I am in the middle of a process called forgiveness, something I actually learned in My Stress and Wellness course at my local college but really didn’t pay attention until now. The other day (2 -3?) days ago) […]

My Poor Pup Archie

May 1st, 2021 My best friend. My Archie. He has been unwell for a couple of days when we started thinking maybe he ingested something which is highly likely as he is a “hover” dog, eating whatever they can find. This morning we found him still lethargic and not getting […]

Spring has come

April 23 2021. My blog for today. So much has gone on over the last while. Well, my mental health is a bit better, I am less paranoid about relationship stuff between Neil and I and even my other friends. I have a few friends, maybe lots but I can’t […]

4/4/2021

Cool date. Easter Sunday for us. I was more focused on preparing for my dad to come over that I forgot about my own kids. Way too old for the whole Easter egg hunt, and my daughter is still staying at her dad’s. We have nice visits and have had […]

After Thought to TGIF

Afterthought. After reading back on my posts I recognize something, like just. My flair of mania with the ever-changing playrooms and hair colour was actually me trying to deal with my mom’s health which seriously took a nosedive around the new year. I tend to hyperfocus on odd things, the […]

TGIF 02,2021

Nice late night TGIF  Where I have been I have oh so much clutter in my little brain. Kudos to the moon phases I am learning about, Neil and I spent some time together, I hadn’t realized my two weeks away from my son, was in fact already 2 weeks. […]
