A simple girl, living a simple life in a simple town with a not so simple mental health disorder. My name is Michele Sigler and I have Bipolar Depression. I am not famous but I do have a voice. michelesigler.com is that voice.
3 years ago I was finally diagnosed with Bipolar Depression. I say finally due to the fact that I finally resigned myself to the fact that I needed help. I had struggled for decades with mood swings and severe depression.
My career background is mental health counseling. Ironic huh?! I had the mindset that I did not need help. I could help myself. Boy was I wrong.
It is so freeing now to have a name to what was going on with me for so long. It is also freeing to have my symptoms "under control" for the most part. Now don't get me wrong, I still have bad days, but they are few and far between.
So why blog? It is therapeutic for me to share and write about something that I have lived with for so many years. I also want to help others. Whether it is sharing an article or writing something personal, my goal is to touch the lives of my readers and hopefully make a difference in someone's life.
