Why do I talk about Mental Health so openly and honestly?
IT NEVER OCCURRED TO ME NOT TO!
People ask me why I chose the name Bipolar Barbie and it all started one Sunday afternoon. My housemate asked me why I have so many clothes and I replied “because I have so many different personalities, they each need their own wardrobe” Then it dawned on me. I am just like a naked barbie doll, waiting to see what outfit I will be dressed in each day, dressed by another hand.
Barbie has her outfits like nurse barbie, horse riding barbie, dancing barbie and everything in between. I am just like that but in the mentally ill world.
My outfits include:
Manic Barbie, Anxious Barbie, Depressed Barbie, Low self esteem barbie, Borderline Barbie
and every other emotion or symptom you can imagine. Never knowing what I am going to face each day, what obstacles will be in my path. Always having to get to know a different version of my self every day with completely new skill sets and weaknesses. Every day is a new adventure, a new burden to bare.
