Bushfire crisis in Australia no end in sight

It is devastating to see the horrific footage of lives and homes lost, townships wiped out in what has supposed to have been a happy Christmas and new year period.

I have seen first hand the destruction back in November on my holiday road trip to Sydney.

I am safe and sound where I am, but am feeling the anxiety on a daily basis as bush fire crisis is streamed online and on television 24 / 7.

With bipolar I have needed to adjust medications to alleviate the anxiety.

For those that have lost everything, our hearts go out to them all. No doubt the crisis will bring a hell of a lot more mental health issues for those affected by this massive and horrible event.

Our fire fighters have been awesome in there efforts to save lives and property. They are struggling, they are exhausted, they have been fighting these fires for weeks on end. Thank you to our overseas friends who have come to assist. Australia has never experienced fires of this magnitude or ferocity…They will all need medical assistance and counselling whenever this disaster ends.

Bipolar is an important topic for me as I have travelled through the highs and lows of this particular mental illness for just over 25 years now. Follow my journey from the past to present and hopefully some of you out there may gain some inspiration and come to the realisation....that it can be a positive and rewarding experience once you have learnt the tools of the trade...and enable you, or someone special in your life, to have a fruitful and rewarding life.
