I’m Back!!

Hello Wild Ones,

How are you? What have you been up to? What’s new since the last time you stopped by here? What are the new coping skills you have picked up on? Tell me everything and I mean everything.

So, I guess after not posting here for almost a year, I owe you guys an explanation. Short answer would be (long sigh) ‘Life’. If you had the chance to look at my blog; you will notice that I deleted all the content from 2020 and 2021; and I have also changed my ‘About‘. In November 2021, I got diagnosed with Bipolar 2 disorder, and this changed my life in a big way. I had always known that this platform was supposed to help make mental health acceptable, accessible and affordable. Learning that I had a long-term mental health issue made this blog’s bigger than me. I knew when I came back that I had to change how I approached it. I would be lying if I said I know how to approach now. I decided it had taken too long. I will just take one step at a time and keep learning. Can’t wait to see what the future holds for this space. I wonder if the explanation justifies the sigh.

So what have y’all been up to lately? Let me know in the comments.

With love and light,

  2. Hey Jackie! It’s pretty cool to have you back. I really enjoyed your posts all those years and I’m kinda sad that they’re off your blog now but, I guess it’s okay. Renewal is always a welcome idea.

    About your diagnosis, I hope there’s no stigma around it in Kenya? I wish you well and, don’t forget your meds. They’re important.

    As for me, I’ve also been inconsistent with blogging lately. I’ve been on hiatus for a while and I started discussing other topics on Substack and Medium.

    Great to have you back Champ! Welcome
