A Lot More Information than You Bargained For...
My name is Melissa. I'm a 39 year old aunt of 11 nieces and nephews (+1 in Heaven). I'm a Paramedic, a medical examiner, I taught at the local community college for about 4 years, and I taught dance for 17 years. I like to keep my hands in a lot of pies, so to speak.
I was about 35 before I discovered I was bipolar. Apparently I had been that way for at least 7 or 8 years. I can't pin point the moment that it happened, that I went from sweet to psych, but I know a lot of situations that wouldn't have happened if I'd been medicated. No sense in regrets, I literally had no control. Ah *shrug* It is what it is.
I have found myself with a lot of extra time at work lately, and even though I'll be back in school soon enough with no time on my hands, I wanted to share some things with the world between now and then. I hope you'll join me on this journey and maybe we can learn about each other along the way.
