This evening I am exposing myself and my broken brain once again, but this time on the radio. I have been asked to be interviewed by the HealthyPlace Radio Show. At first I was very hesitant to open up myself up to a radio interview and discuss my mental health; it is very raw, there is no do-overs, what I say is what you get, I had no idea what the topic would be, I was nervous about hearing my own voice talking about the hardships of mental illness...
My twitter friend, Amy, asked me to do the interview a month ago. It took me that long to say yes. I really had to think about it. When I agreed to it, we talked about potential topics, everything from stress and its impact on bipolar, social life and the affect of mental illness on it, drugs and their side effects, working and bipolar..... Amy decided that i will be discussing how social relationships are affected by living with Bipolar 2 and social anxiety.
I have been thinking a lot about the topic and realize that what is most prevalent is that not only are my relationships affected by my mental illness, but they have pretty much disappeared because of my mental illness. I am trying to think of why? what did I do to make that happen? how i am adapting to the new reality? I expect to talk about all of that this evening.
Anyway I can be listened to here at 7pm Central 8pm Eastern if you care to join me. I'm nervous, so wish me luck.
