My name is Paul and I suffer with bipolar disorder.
My mental illness has affected my work as a writer and my relationship with my son's mother.
I hope that in the future I will get better and be able to offer support to other people who suffer with a mental illness, also to reduce stigma.
I'm taking 5 on Time to Talk Day because I want to raise awareness of mental health issues.
This blog is part of the Time to Talk Day 2015 #Take5ToBlog initiative.
