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.

Elemental Battle

Internal discomfort running through my body No escapes It torments Fuel in my head ignites the fire Losing control Blazing Jumbled, garbled Abundance of energy Plethora of emotions Engrossed, overwhelmed Exasperated, immobilised By this madness Abolish these senseless thoughts This energy of my mind Need them to go  Need it […]
