The Bipolar Writer Podcast is about mental health and mental illness. James Edgar Skye discusses real-life issues facing those in the mental illness community today using our stories and voices. The thing about stories is that they transcend not just the person but the community.

    The Bipolar Writer Podcast Interview with Jessica

    The Bipolar Writer Podcast Interview with Jessica

    Episode Description



    Hi, my name is Jess, I’m a Latina in my mid 30’s I’m a mom & wife, and I am diagnosed with GAD & Panic disorder. It’s an honor to be on here to speak my truths about my mental health & advocate for this movement with James. I want to continue to break the stigmas about mental illness among our communities of people of color. I have my blog called She’s Hiatus. It's my muse of self-expression through my writing from poetry, my life experiences & fictional pieces. I'm also introducing a movement called “she’s hiatus,” which serves as a reminder that it’s essential to stop & smell the roses. Life is full of hustle & bustle. We need to allow ourselves to go hiatus to work on ourselves, do things that we enjoy, be present with ourselves & loved ones by keeping those moments simple, private & just BE. 



    Learning how to find balance in life and especially managing our virtual life nowadays is so important for our mental health & overall well-being since it can be so time-consuming. I also feature a remarkable collection of stories from amazing & brave women called “Her Story.” This collective brings a voice to women of color that share their personal life experiences with me & the world. This ongoing project holds great sentimental value with me & it’s an honor to be part of it. 



    Please follow my blog & IG: www.sheshiatus.com

    Check out my piece called “Violent waves,” which perfectly describes a panic attack in my perspective in the link below.

    Day 47: How is it going?

    Day 47: How is it going?

    Episode Description

    47 days.



    That is how many days have passed since January 1st, 2021, and I rededicated to sobriety. Today was one of those I hate because there is a lot of self-doubts, self-loathing, and above all, guilt for reaching out to people. It is not my way. I wanted to share some thoughts and where I am when I recorded this episode, which is not a great place. I am here and doing my best, but the pull to alcohol and feeling alone is strong on day 47. Come along for a listen and maybe hear the pain I am in right now and know that you are not alone.

    2020 - James' Year in Review

    2020 - James' Year in Review

    Episode Description 



    I wanted to share my experiences as James Edgar Skye with the ups, the downs, even the negatives and positives of life. I shared what I went through, which was a lot in 2020, with my mother's loss in December 2019, and it changed my world. I still went through immense pain, and I am trying my best to continue to work on my inner I with living in the now. Life coaching was a major part and was suicidal thoughts that I endured. I felt the feels and was more vulnerable to others outside of me than at any point on this journey.  Join me as I talk about what 2020 meant to me, The Bipolar Writer and James Edgar Skye.

James Edgar Skye ,

A great mental health Podcast

The Bipolar Writer made a name for himself as a blogger on the The Bipolar Writer blog and now he has taken his work to a new and exciting podcast. To hear his story and experience over the year since losing his mother was an experience like no other. I recommend that you listen to his words.
