Food

I love to eat. I love going out to eat. I meet up with two college friends once per month and we try a different brunch spot in Brooklyn or Manhattan.

Chicken and waffles from Pies N' Thighs

Fried catfish, potato salad, and macaroni and cheese from Dinosaur BBQ

Meals in Spain. Summer 2013. I went for my 30th birthday. 

Breakfast in San Diego. Summer 2012. 

Dinner in San Diego. Summer 2012. 

Chicken, collard greens, and potato salad from Dinosaur BBQ.

Brunch at Bare Burger

Breakfast at Grid Iron Waffle Shop.

Sweet potato pancakes (they were so good!), chicken and red velvet waffles, and shrimp and grits at Soco.

  1. First, I hope with all my heart that you find a way to handle your illness so that it doesn't handle you; and keep in mind, your illness is only a part of you, not all of you.
    Second, congrats on all of your accomplishments. That couldn't have been easy.
    Third, but not least, even though your food choices look wonderful, just keep an eye on the calories:)

    1. I am confident that I have as good a handle on my disorder as possible. I do a LOT to stay stable. Thank you! Really exciting stuff has been happening. I'm not too worried about calories. Lol. I have been consciously eating less and I've been losing weight.

  3. I want to thank you for telling your truth! My mother provided me with your blog; my sister has been diagnosed with bio-polar. We do not have a relationship and I don't know if we ever will but I know it's important to state that she, like you, matters to many. I thank you for finding the courage to tell your story, as many people assume to know and provide false assumptions about people who are bio-polar. We all have to work on something, and for you to tell your truth, the truth that aligns for others as well, is so important. I will continue to follow you on your life truth journey. May God continue to bless and keep you protected with His love and guidance.

    1. Thank you for your blessings! I'm trying to become a spokesperson for bipolar disorder. I'm young, educated, lucid and reflective and very knowledgeable about the disorder.
