.The magazine article about my bipolar journey comes out this afternoon in Mississippi Christian Living, a magazine distributed throughout Mississippi and heavily promoted in the Jackson area. Everyone that I cared about knowing already knows, but after this article, everyone I know should be aware of it now. That’s a little scary. My husband’s extended family has kind of ignored my condition since my last crisis, and I hope this article coming out does not upset them. I don’t discuss my crises in it, but simply my daily life and my walk with God. But I imagine it could be disconcerting to them to be asked about me in the days to come.
I also don’t want to upset my kids. I ran it by them and they seemed fine with the idea, but I hope they can use it to educate their peers instead of their peers starting to look down on them. I’ve never wanted to embarrass my kids. I want my story to be public and reach people, but I don’t want my family tarred by association. It’s a delicate balance. And I ride it every time I talk, or make a post, or do an interview.
I’ll publish the link once they put it up on their site. Thanks for your prayer support over the next few days in this. I appreciate it more than you know.
