I have friends who don't understand my need to write all of my thoughts. Writing helps me process my thoughts and feelings. It helps me empty those thoughts and feelings out of me so I don't have to think about them all night. Nothing I write is profound or truly original, but it is my story. Things have happened to me and this is my way of documenting them. Some day way down the road, I want to be able to help my great, great grandchildren to make sense of this if they are diagnose with this disease. Maybe it will help them to see that I am okay, and they will be okay as well.
I post my thoughts publicly for the same reason. Again, nothing I write is earth shattering news, however I hope it puts a real person's experience to this illness. I hope that my silliness makes one person with bipolar feel less alone.
If not, this is purely my amusement and my sanity.
