<--Who I like to be

This is me most days. The guy who walks around spreading happiness and sunshine wherever he goes. I am grounded and completely normal. I get along with everyone I meet. I love everyone I meet as if they were me.

How I feel most days -->

My name is Bill and I have type 1 diabetes and bipolar mood disorder. This website is how I deal with my shit.  I document it from different perspectives. All with the intention of helping anyone who finds themselves drawn to read it.

Everything is Energy

Why?

I woke up one day believing I was God, and I had all the memories to substantiate such a claim. Unfortunately when I tried to tell someone, I got locked up in a mental facility until I admitted I wasn't. It took me several weeks to get back to a point of reality where I could finally be myself again. With this website, I can. This is my journal, and my diary. The struggles that I endure, and the painful memories that have brought me here. We all have the same story. I hope by having the courage to tell mine and look like the crazy guy, will help other people somehow. Not sure how. Just hoping for the best.

Mental Illness

I have some issues with the way I see the world. I'm bipolar and delusional sometimes. Most of the time, what it feels like to me is that the people around me are all confused about who they are. My hope is we can all come to the understanding that we are all made up of God stuff and are here to love and be loved.
