About The Unchained Shadow

Well, where do I begin. I am in my mid-life years making a blog about what it’s like in my world. I have Bipolar 1, and was diagnosed many years ago, but it took a long time before it finally settled in. I was off meds for three years, when suddenly, all the symptoms came back with a vengeance and sent me straight back into the hospital.

So now, I am just trying to make it. It is April 22, 2017 when I am writing this, so who knows what may happen in my life as this blog progresses. I am currently out of work and on disability. My goal is to eventually get a part-time job and then hopefully move on to a full-time Civil Service job. I can’t be on disability forever, nor do I want to be. I want to something meaningful and profound with my life.

Bipolar is really hard on me, but relationships are harder. I had gotten myself involved with several men over the years, and even shared my blog with them. See here: Love With a Dark Heart In Chains I had to shut that blog down because it was getting way too crazy for me with all the cryptic comments being made on there. I lost over 300 followers in leaving that blog behind, but I needed a new beginning.

I am trying my best to stay out of chatrooms and to leave the online world behind. I want to move on with my life and not be so dependent on online relationships. This blog will be my journey into the unknown and into what, I hope, will be the start of a new chapter for me. So join me as I navigate through my crazy world of bipolar and online adventures, I guarantee you it will be worth the read.

Stay tuned.
