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.

Covered in cotton Eyes blackened with soot Wars I have fought in Leaning on wrong foot Pulled out the weeds Found the special one Instructions that freed Standing in the sun Shooting stars ready now Grabbing at chances fear Earning a small bow Midnight sun so near I started today […]

The Marionette

(The Marionette) The mad man glances at me No way I can set myself free Guided only by his hand He tries to make me stand For my fear, doesn’t fit his suit That brings me to his beck and call He tells me what to do but I fall […]

Just a Blog

Freedom

Freedom Ⅰ  With my cup held high I look beyond the sunshine Feelings of this cannot Sustain this trip Overstuffed my grey travel bag, brimming at the seams I put everything I had in there Even my ghosts and those with hollow eyes that I see in my dreams Fearless […]

The Tides- A Poem

A letter to Anne Sexton Confessional poetry I too have felt the strain of the heavy shackles that held me tight  Far away from the lock and key Thoughts as dark as night No peace to be found I see those hideous creatures all around They barf in our brain […]

Mirror Image

A letter to Sylvia Plath Confessional poem. I too, in the mirror image of you, have  been bestowed a gift of pride and joy  Wrapped in pretty things like ribbon and lace. A sheer delight. So they say. Chaos crashing in my mind Drowning out any peace Flooding the ground […]

Rejuvenate – A Poem

Rejuvenate In the briskest of days, amongst the crackling leaves fallen below in warm hues  of rich ruby red and crisp yellow, her eyes rest upon the newly trampled path placing  her weary naked feet upon the deep rich cool carpet of moss covered in morning dew as she immerses […]
