With the support of the Bipolar Community, we introduce JustMe, the Bipolar Hive. Why this name...? To unify people and to collectively ending stigmas. But fighting stigmas means changing perspectives, both our own and the perspective of others. The term itself, 'bipolar', that doesn't do us any favors.
The HumanCare Manifesto was written to inspire us all to join forces and help each other live healthier and happier lives. It is just plain wrong that the 'care' of people isn't the #1 priority in Healthcare. Together, we can and will change that. Thank you so much for your help in bringing this HumanCare Manifesto to life.
As many others do... we love Nicole Principe.
Nicole is a #Webe and webes do good for others. So... we are creating a book full of fun, love and inspiration. Each page will be an individual quote, words of hope, an inside joke, etc, from you.
So, I'm just going to say hi and share the only thing that actually matters to you as you read this...

We collaborated with local people from the bipolar community and artist George Hage to create this design. But we wanted to create something more than just a catchy shirt, we wanted to create a wearable and stylish piece of art that allowed people to tell their story. Ending a stigma doesn't happen all at once, it happens one person, one story, one conversation at a time.

Like the spectrum itself, the stories of families with kids on the spectrum are vast. They range from defining autism, to the day-to-day family struggles, to the wonders of the rare child prodigy.
Being diagnosed with a chronic disease is as much if not more an emotion or mental diagnosis as it is a physical one. It typically brings with it two universally understood reactions. One, run and hide from it. Two, stand and fight it. But Lauren Rowe shows us that there is a third way, to lean in to it, own it and make it sexy.
