THE STORY:

I was diagnosed with Bipolar Disorder after an allergic reaction to an anti-malaria medication I took in 2004 in order to go to Honduras on a mission trip. When I told friends and family about it I got various reactions; anything from " You know I will be there for you. " to " Well, you just need to trust God more. You know anxiety and depression are sins don't you?" It has been painful, hard, and my husband has told me that I am so different now. I feel two ways about Bipolar disorder. First, Bipolar Disorder is a thief. It has robbed me of my sense of humor, my animated demeanor, my even-keeled temperament, and my sense of self worth. On the other hand, Bipolar Disorder is a gift giver. It has given me the ability to ask for help, a greater dependence on God and my loved ones and the ability to take pain and hurt and make something beautiful. many of you have walked this journey with me, which has included three hospitalizations, manic and depressive episodes, and much unexpected pain. On May 7 I will be walking to raise awareness for mental illness in South Carolina and I would like you to either come walk with me or give money to the cause. I would greatly appreciate it. Call, message, text, email, or comment if you want to join the cause. Dana McLaughlin danamac@bellsouth.net 803-348-3453
