Who am I?

That depends on which doctor you ask, but if you’re
asking me, well, here is the truth because that you get for free.

I am someone who has mental illnesses. Three to be precise.

I have suffered from anxiety and depression for over a decade but most recently, bipolar disorder is the newest recruit.

The majority of this blog will be dedicated to sharing my battles with mental illness and to document how they contribute to and counteract my daily life and creativity. From both sides of the swing.

So the question isn’t who am I, it’s who am I today? I never really know, but my name doesn’t change.

It’s Jaimi Quinn and I am bipolar, but that is not who I am, it’s what I am.

I grew up in Neverland and never really left. I consider myself a lost boy even though I am a girl, forever seeking eternal youth. Okay, not quite. 

But I do consider myself a ‘professional Chameleon’, simply because I am not one thing, I am many. I aspire to be many things too, including myself.

In short, I am one of those creative types. I paint, I read, I take photographs and I write. I may not do them well, but I still do them, nonetheless.

Most of my time, I am inside my own head, I mean what better place is there…?

Thinking, creating, destroying, planning to take over the world one day with my incredibly perceptive writing.

That was a joke, albeit not funny but I’ll work on that.

Talking of working, I’m slugging it out on several film scripts; a handful of shorts, that fingers crossed I’ll make; some funny YouTube sketches that one day you might see, a poetry collection; and artwork just to give my head a break.

So, if you are still reading, thank you. I’m glad you’re not bored yet, but if you want to be, you can check out my prose & poetry to give your eyes a headache or read something I find interesting, usually my own thoughts.

But hey, I gotta’ talk to somebody seeing as my cat doesn’t care much unless I have Tea.

That’s me, now who are you?

Reach out.

 

It’s Jaimi Quinn.
