Solemn Stream – A Summary

28 May 2011 Book 3 Comments

The relationship between faith and bipolar disorder, can at once seem contradictory and without correlation.  But as so many journeys in life, we don’t always know how the path with unfold.

‘Solemn stream – A poetic journey through Faith and Bipolar’, is a collection of poetry and journal style entries that has been compiled over 10 years.

The writing offers a window into the reality of bipolar disorder and anxiety from a personal lens. The nature of these conditions are that they are variable, so it is perhaps from the collective snapshots of thought and feeling over time that one can sense a truer picture.  The effect of both subtle and overt bullying in the teen years is also reflected upon, as well as how all these factors can influence how one reacts to social and academic expectations over the longer term.

A motivation to publish this collection is to share my own experience with those who have faced similar struggles, and also to increase understanding among those who can’t relate directly.  The writing as a whole leads to reflecting on the blessings that can be found in trials.
