Nightmares and Laughter

Welcome to Nightmares and Laughter!

I’m glad you’re here!

This blog is primarily about living with mental illness.  I write about my struggles with bipolar disorder, the everyday joy, pain, and peeks into my life, an always unflinchingly honest look at the struggles and victories from my experience.

I also write about goats because they are funny.

 I want to be an advocate of sorts for people suffering in silence.  I want all of us to remember that the diagnosis is not the end, it just makes us stronger.

Like many others, I deal with adversity and pain with humor.  This is frequently fairly dark and self-mocking. If this sort of thing is new for you, the article on Gallows Humor may be helpful.
