YA author Bobbie Pyron on The Perks of Being BiPolar

I love it when people talk about things that affect them, that can affect other people, too. Things that can be hard to talk about, but need to be talked about. I think talking about painful things can help make a positive difference in the world. So I’m proud of YA author Bobbie Pyron for her article The Perks of Being BiPolar.

I don’t have BiPolar. But I do know what it’s like to live with severe depression, PTSD, and DID (resulting from the child abuse and torture I endured) and it can feel unbearable, hard to live through sometimes. And sometimes it can be hard to talk about–especially if people judge it. Some people do judge.

But when someone speaks out, it helps to make such a positive difference–for people who’ve been through the same or similar experiences, and for others who never have, but ho might be able to understand someone they love or know a bit better because of it.

So kudos to Bobbie Pyron for speaking out!

Bobbie Pyron is the author of A Dog’s Way Home and The Ring.
