You glow like the lighthouse through my shipwreck’- Dani Sylvia lyrics
This blog was started by Eleanor Segall. a young woman in the UK who has lived with bipolar disorder for 13 years as well as an anxiety disorder. Diagnosed with bipolar 1 disorder (a mood disorder) at 16, and now in my twenties, I blog about what has helped me in recovery and am here to help others too.
Be Ur Own Light was started in March 2016 to raise awareness to friends and family of what life is like living with these conditions and to emphasise how, however difficult you can go on to live a happy and fulfilling life. I write to combat stigma against mental illness and increase understanding of mental health conditions.
I hope you enjoy reading the posts and positive comments and any questions are always welcomed. You can contact me via the Contact page, email or tweet me @EleanorSegall and @beurownlight. I am also on Instagram @beurownlightblog.
