My name is Karl Terrell, Otherwise to be known as Nightshade. I experienced early onset puberty which then led to early onset bi-polar disorder. I&II. And social anxiety disorder. And borderline, so they tell me. I am also a trained and certified Peer Recovery Specialist. Before becoming a CPRS, though I played rock music in bars and clubs from 11 years of age until I fell apart at age 31. This blog will deal with bi-polar issues, such as coping skills, humor, tears, heartache and other things we suffer when dealing with symptoms. Always yours, Nightshade.
