Hello, I’m Summer Moon. I have been diagnosed with Bipolar, Anxiety, and Obsessive-Compulsive Disorder since 2009. Until, early this year, my doctors didn’t know if it was Bipolar type 1 or 2. I now know it’s type 2. I’ve struggled with my diagnosis since 2009, and I have visited many blogs and forums on the medical issue. I’ve also searched for ones that show that it is possible to have mental illness, while still truly holding the Lord God, Our Father in my heart. I have been made to feel otherwise by some people, but I refuse to believe that. So, how did I get to this point of creating my own blog?
Well, a good friend of mine created a blog last year to document her journey to the Lord. Her blog is such an inspirational read and it got me seriously thinking about blogging myself. I have followed her blog since the beginning, yet I just couldn’t get myself to make one of my own. I had the idea of its content, but not the courage to actually start one.
Then, recently, one of my nephews – with whom I grew up – started a blog of his own, documenting his journey to Africa for which he will do three months of missionary work this summer. Once again, I was inspired even more so to create my blog, but still the needed courage was absent… that is until the last couple of weeks.
A strong and incredible urge has been pulling me these weeks to finally start writing here. I’ve been trying hard to ignore that urge because there is no way I would ever post such content for the world to see. It is just not in me to do such a thing. I would never create a blog about my personal struggles. However, our plans don’t always match up with what God has in mind.
So, with that said, welcome to my blog!
