Hi I’m Alice*, welcome to my Wonderland.
Beware the little white rabbit. Writing is cheaper than therapy or drugs. Welcome to my
slow descent into overwhelming madness boring life.
This is my personal wellness project, embracing the good, the bad and the ugly. Exploring my musings on any topic I find interesting. Writing about mental health feels like a blank slate, taking away some of my own drama with each post. My blog is my internet ‘black box‘ where I can voice my ideas that I don’t voice to the people in my life.
Since being diagnosed with Bipolar Disorder 2 in September 2014, I’ve found it really difficult to be okay with my diagnosis. The stigma and discrimination towards mental illness needs to stop, we can’t assist with this process without first talking about it and gaining a better insight into the different experiences that people have had. My blog is a glimpse into my less than perfect mind, allowing my thoughts to be glamorized by the anonymity and obscurity of the web.
“Only know you’ve been high when you’re feeling low”.
“What do you look at while you’re making up your mind? Ours is not a reflective culture, we do no raise our eyes up to the hills. Most of the time we decide the critical things while looking at the linoleum floor of an institutional corridor, or whispering hurriedly in a waiting room with a television blatting nonsense.”
― Thomas Harris, Hannibal
