I am a 38-year old father, WordPress developer, musician and social misfit who has bipolar disorder. I have lived with the illness for 19 years and it has gotten less difficult for me to *stay stable* the majority of the time.
I’m blessed with a wonderful family including two singular daughters, my parents, two sisters, and countless supportive relatives.
Maybe the biggest message I want to get across on this site is Don’t Ever Give Up! even when everything is black and you’re curled up in bed for weeks.
There IS hope and a promise for a new life for everyone who suffers from bipolar disorder or depression.
I am living proof that severe Bipolar I Disorder can be successfully treated with a good psychiatrist (or pdoc), the right meds, a daily schedule, a good night’s sleep and so much more (keep reading the blog!).
I wish you the best if you or a loved one is fighting a mental illness. I am here to be a beacon in the darkness and shed light on ways to make your “crazy” more productive and less stressful.

Any ongoing journey with mental illness is going to require some assistance. I want you to know you are not alone in how you feel. I have definitely run the gamut of emotions during my depressive and manic episodes so I can relate. Please feel free to email me directly any time at dpk (at) sadblogger (dot) com.
