Introduction Bipolar. Former drunk. The other side of forty. Once divorced, now happily partnered. Live with my partner and one diabetic cat. Gainfully employed in IT in the public sector. Politically progressive. Somewhat talented musician and songwriter who hates the music business. Physically active, yet still has a BMI of 29 (thank you, psych drugs). A hopeless romantic. A sentimental fool. Laughing on the outside, but laughing harder on the inside.
Interests music, words, mental health, politics, web accessibility, living with mental illness, kicking ass, taking names.
