Ready. Set. Sail!
Hello hello and good morning!!! I’d love to share with you guys my second BpHope article on this lovely Thursday morning.This one is a little more serious and something I’ve been wanting to write for myself for a long time. I hope you guys like it. It’s an informal letter to myself the next time I get into a really low depression:
Suicide claims 1 in 5 of us every year. The tribe slowly dwindles. We can slow that number down if we can help each other and be there for each other. Bipolar doesn’t have to be something that defeats us.
One person who is standing against that statistic is my friend and U.S. Air Force Veteran Lisa L. Reed. Her blog The Bipolar Alphabet is about to launch a 28 day posting schedule from Tuesday, May 3rd through Thursday, June 9th to raise awareness for bipolar disorder and fight stigma. Her Kickstarter campaign will take those posts, along with her original paintings, and make a beautiful hardcover picture book that she wants to share with you.
If you want some blog promotion, she promises to do a shout out AND your name in the book for those of you who donate under the correct pledge amount as well as several other reward levels.
Lisa believes that “everyone with bipolar disorder has the means to have a voice to fight for their wellbeing.” Help her fight the stigma and bring the tribe a little more recognition for all our hard work. Reblog. Share on Social Media. Donate!!
Hurry, the campaign ends March 30th!!
