Hello!  I’m Kristi and I’m Mentally Ill.

Actually, I’m much more than that!  I’m a mothering, teaching, reading, writing, blogging, arting, crafting, running, hiking, traveling, and exploring bipolar woman who wants to live a genuine life and not hide behind the masks of perfection anymore.  I’ve finally realized, after decades of denial, that being mentally ill is not a shame, and I’m willing to open myself up in order to help end the stigma of mental illness once and for all. 🙂
