Bipolar When It Counts











{November 29, 2012}   Hiho, Hiho, its off to school I go

So right now I am off to the university to pick up the forms for my doctor to fill out. I am super nervous about doing this. I’ve never actually declared that I was bipolar while at school. Not to mention that I am going to be taking some psychology classes.

All the same I am really excited. I registered for classes yesterday, three of them. Turns out, purely by chance that my professor for ALL THREE CLASSES will be the same lady. Weird. That’s never happened before. I’m curious to see how that will go…

Anyway. That form. I have to get my family doctor to fill it out, to prove that I have a disability that can be assisted by their programming. We already know that I am eligible though. This is for funding purposes.

I drop it off at the school, and meet with the counselor next Wednesday to discuss how things will go from here.

I’ll keep you posted…



{November 25, 2012}   Question of the day #5

So all you bipolar friends. In keeping with the theme of my last post, here is the question of the day today.

What is the one piece of advice you wish someone had given you, or the one tool you wish you had had when you were in school?

I look forward to reading your answers!



{November 25, 2012}   School? ? ?

So I’m thinking about going back to school in January. I’ve only got a few classes left to do before I’m finished a three year degree. The only problem is that I want to do a for year degree, which leaves me with 14 classes left. Can I do it?

Am I going to be able to handle going back? I was thinking about doing 3 classes. See, the thing us, I thrive at school. I love the environment, and the challenge it presents. The people are amazing too.

Its like a whole separate world there, one where I feel like I really belong. I would love to teach at the university level. I think it would be amazing. To share my passion with others? You can’t get much better than that!

I have always wanted to pursue my Masters and PhD. I am thinking it may be time to revisit that dream.

All of this is possible because of my
wonderful husband. He is so supportive of everything I want to do. And this is the one thing that I haven’t been able to finish since we met.

Maybe I will actually be able to finish my degree after all. Wish me luck!
