I’ve pretty much summed up who I am in my first post. However, I did leave one thing out. The inspiration for the title of this blog came from my having bipolar disorder. Oil and water don’t mix and having bipolar disorder is like behaving in a way that doesn’t jibe with how you really are when it is controlled. In other words, I’d like to think that I’m a normal, relaxed person. Meaning, no outward symptoms of this stigma-laden disorder. Though, when I’m experiencing symptoms, my laid back personality goes out the window. Everything is well controlled and has been for ten years. I know how to manage my symptoms better now.

I have a large immediate family and lots of nieces and nephews.

I don’t like unicorns. They freak me out. Just kidding.
