I am bipolar and proud, but that is not all of me or my existence.
I’m a woman, a feminist and a lesbian, but I do not feel bound by any definitions, labels or identities.
I like to laugh, but hate crying.
My politics veer toward the radical and even revolutionary, I am a radical queer anti-assimilationist.
I don’t watch television, don’t read People magazine, and do not care about the cult of celebrity.
I love to travel.
I am an atheist and also a optimistic pessimist.
I love country music.
I like to read, but have a lot of trouble concentrating because of my meds. I don’t have the same concentration issues when I write because it is more active.
I like black licorice, pomegranates and hamburgers.
