One of our missions in creating this podcast is to reduce the stigma of mental illness. On todays episode, I speak with David Wilson-Burns, a friend of mine who was diagnosed with bipolar I disorder in his 30s. He speaks openly about the ups and downs of his mental health journey in the hopes that other's will find comfort and support from his experiences.
David Wilson-Burns is a writer, software engineer, and musician living in Norman, Oklahoma, a college town in the Oklahoma City Metropolitan area. He has a degree in Vocal Music Education from the University of Oklahoma and has published works of fiction, personal essays, and poetry. He writes a blog called My Wife Says I’m Complicated about topics ranging from computer programming, spirituality, personal life, mental illness, fiction, travel, and a satirical small-town newspaper named The Puddlegulch Post; although, most have been set to private while he undergoes treatment for blogaholism at the Over-Sharer’s Recovery Center in Frankenmuth, Michigan.
