About me

Industry Student

Location Rock Vegas, IL, United States
Introduction Hello, friends. Truly a pleasure!

I was diagnosed with bipolar disorder, attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (AD/HD), and obsessive compulsive disorder (OCD) my freshman year of college, Fall '05. The following semester, Spring '06, was spent in what I'm convinced was hell while doctors worked out a medication plan for me. I returned to college in Fall '06 and have been attending ever since. I am now in my junior year.

The contents of this blog are my personal experiences, struggles and victories, and constant work toward health and overall betterment. Join me in my continual discovery of what life with these disorders entails for one "high-functioning" person in her 20's... and research about these disorders for deeper understanding and appreciation.

You forgot your mom's birthday! What can you make out of super glue and olive pits?

I would make a flower (or a bunch of flowers!) that will never die...
