I feel like a molecule bouncing here and there voilently. A lost confused molecule. I am crying and I am laughing. It's too much happening at once.

As some of you know, I was in the emergency room on Friday, March 23, because I couldn’t stop self-harming. I was there from 4:00 PM until about 6:30AM the next day, when I was transferred to, I’ll call it, Behavioral Hospital. It’s a mental institution, but calling it that would be self-stigmatizing.

a poem that I just have to share by our friend Lawrence, who blogs about his struggles with bipolar disorder with honesty and eloquence.
Facing a different person
Is facing the unknown
The unknown scares
The public wants “different”
But they cannot handle it
They cannot understand it
They want an outside the box view
Yet they live inside
Where they are comfortable.
For us, it’s a bit reversed
We don’t know or don’t want to know
What is inside the box
As we are living and operating outside of it.
Until we find a level playing field
We will never be accepted
We are different
Peace and serenity
