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.

A Bit Of Green

About a year and a half ago I was in the process of moving, preparing my house to go up for sale.  It was such a difficult time for me, both on my mental health and my physical health. I was exhausted, overwhelmed and the change, not knowing where I […]

Dec. 19th 2019

Things have been so stressful here and I can feel the mania surface again. I also dropped the day time dose too quick. So I was good yesterday, I followed the directions to take at least half the dose. Neil and I decided we would take an evening to ourselves […]

Isolation

Overcome all sights and sounds I place my feet firmly on the ground Don’t come inside I have lost my pride And all I want to do is hide I feel like I may have even died Don’t you see I have shutdown And all I see is your frown […]
