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.

Just a Blog

November 2, 2020 It has been such a long time since I have last done a “blog” style post.  It seems I have been so busy, trying to live, trying to function. It has been a hard go over the last few months. One of my last blogs was the […]

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 […]

Poetry Assignment One

I started a course at my local college in Creative Writing. We are given assignments and I would like to publish what I have written. Our assignment was to recreate poetry that would mimic Kalil Gibran’s style of poetry.  Here are my three that I will be submitting. I hope […]

Book 2, chapter 21

August 7th, 2020 The day before our ‘wedding’. I am getting nervous. Neil surprised me with so much info, I do not feel prepared. What I thought was just going to be a party it is turning out to be a wedding. Neil didn’t talk to me about it till […]

Countdown

Neil and I postponed the wedding after I finally decided what I was going to wear. Funny how things work sometimes. COVID is still around, we have opened most things now and the infections are starting to pick up again, this time with a younger group. Apparently there have been […]

Rock Star

Question is. Am I manic or just full of good ideas? I am not looking for the answer, I am not quite sure what I am right now. It is more a statement. I will tell you a story. Once upon a time, there was this very timid shy ‘soccer […]
