Not Bipolar Today? Cholesterol for Life

I have been much healthier recently. Off all medications for many years now and getting back into the world. Not easy after Bipolar 1. It takes time.

I continue to be interested in recovery from mental health troubles (even today I have paid research work on this at Nottingham University) yet more interested in sharing what we can do physically to be well.

Maybe, by April, I’ll be writing on subjects more related to mood. For now, this is planning for Saturday. Hoping lots of people come along to learn about the importance/usefulness of healthy cholesterol.

Sharing Wellness – Pay It Forward

About 5 years without needing medication and 17 years since hospitalization, I am spending a lot less time on bipolar and a lot more time with family and working on new business ventures.

I am keen to ‘give back’ locally – kind of ‘pay it forward’… If you live near Nottingham in the UK you will be very welcome to join us at any of these events. The first is this Monday 19th Sept 2016.

Eliminating Disorder with or without medication

It can take a long time to learn enough to move beyond any psychiatric label. I took prescription drugs to treat bipolar disorder for 14 years with no intention of ever stopping. That period and the years of relatively good health since have greatly influenced my career and created my passion for discovering and sharing the root causes of diseases and disorders.

Now that I am free from bipolar disorder you may notice I am increasingly sharing information about other aspects of recovery, greater well-being and resilience regardless of diagnosis.

What has worked best for me? Meeting the best people, focusing more on physical health, then eliminating the disorder rather than being too concerned about what it might mean to be bipolar.

I chose to leave the corporate world in 2015 (last day with a multi-national was in April 2016) and now have the freedom to make a difference. Contact me. Lets meet up.

Wellness Recovery Action Planning – WRAP

Wellness Recovery Action Planning – WRAP has been an important part of my recovery. If in USA you probably know of The Copeland Center.
