Update: I resumed editing this blog post on 17 May 2023. Adding some extra information, links etc. I'd gone off on a tangent winding up my blog on Bipolar Courage, which I intend to leave up as a resource. It's kind of how I write books, out of order but books are way more complex as I tell stories, not just like a series of minimally edited essays or blog posts. I also spend way longer on my books than blog posts, trying to reorganise the content to flow better for the reader.
It's evening of 30 April 2023. A whole lot has happened this week, month, year.
A week before there was a huge announcement about some major policy changes affecting an enormous number of people, I made a decision to discontinue my advocacy as Bipolar Courage. I have been burnt out with it for a long time and it just got to the point where it was too exhausting to try speak on camera for the vlog on YouTube. I recorded over 1,000 videos and intend to leave them up as a resource (even though sometimes I've been tempted to private or delete some of them).
