As some of you know I am writing a book and I finally finished chapter 3, yes only chapter 3 lol, and I am working on the 4th. but it took me about 2 months to finish it. I am really proud of myself. I guess I am getting better and coming out of the depression. slowly but surely. now if I could I just make this irritability and anger go away I would be doing a lot better!

Hi AJL,

Congratulations! I'm writing a book two, also VERY slowly. Every step feels like a milestone. But it will get done. Let's just keep knocking away at it and we'll get there. Way to go! I'm only on Chapter 2, but I've been taking an online writing course, which was super fun.

Twisted,
You SHOULD be so proud of yourself! As we all know, many people who have bp can be very creative, intelligent people. I'm so happy to see you're channelling it in a positive way and making it work for you. So many people (even people withouth bp) don't know how to do that. Writing is such healthy therapy. Keep plugging along and try not to let "the dark side" distract you from what you're goal is. You're doing great-Kudos to you!

Lostwife, how are you doing anyhow?

That is so awesome that you're writing a book. You'll have to give us all a copy when it's done. LoL!

Lostwife, you're sooo right! People with bp are very creative. My husband can draw....Oh my gosh, he draws beautiful pictures. He also can play the guitar, sing, juggle (which I have never been able to do, LoL) he has sooo many talents. I used to tell him that it made me soo mad that he had all of these and I feel like I have none. What makes me mad with him is that he doesn't apply his talents. He used to sing in our worship band at church...that truly made him happy. But now, he very seldom picks up his guitar, which really makes me sad because he is so good at it and sings so great. My husband also writes beautiful poems. Wow, he really has a lot of talents. He wrote one about the Iraq war...it was so awesome! I tried to talk him into having it published...but he didn't think it was good enough. Me, I have no talents except I can type 70wpm. LoL!

Anyhow, keep up the good work with your book. I started to write one about 12 years ago...got to chapter 2 and stopped. I had someone to publish it and everything...man was I stupid! I should really get back to that, huh? LoL! Take care everyone! :-)
