Do I need an editor? Do I need to organize my writing into a more cohesive whole? Or, does this format fit what I am trying to accomplish? What is it I am trying to accomplish? I believe that I have a ministry to educate others on mental illness, specifically bipolar disorder, more to the point — somewhat “high functioning” type II bipolar disorder.

I see myself writing and speaking. Not just to other writers or to other’s struggling with mental illness, but to the world at large. Perhaps, in part, for narcissistic reasons. I am, and have always been, a drama queen. I love an audience. I need fawning fans. Still, I see the need for more education about mental illness. We do not all go about on violent rampages. We may think horrible thoughts, yet not act on them.
