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 anxiety disorders. 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 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.
For more Blog posts, you can see my posts about life with bipolar and anxiety on Rethink Mental Illness, Time to Change, Bipolar UK and further collaborations with The Counsellors Cafe, Counselling Directory, Phobia Support Forum, Self Harm UK and the Monologues Project. I also blog for the Huffington Post UK, Brighton Wellness Centre and other organisations. See the articles tab to read more!
Upcoming collaborations: Happiful magazine, Equilibrium magazine, World Union of Jewish students, Mind charity.
