103 – High Dawn
Hello, my name is Dathan and I struggle with ADHD and bipolar disorder. The majority of my life I was a manic mess. Kids in the neighborhood did not like me because I was annoying due to my inability to stay still or in the same thought process. Some people even called me crazy. I tried to channel my energies into journaling to help control my manic behaviors. I was learning how to cope with my excessive talking and hyperactive behaviors by journaling and doing art. People were then able to be around me with ease. I find art to be very therapeutic and helps me to control some of my behaviors. I enjoy all different types of art even though I am challenged by my lack of abilities.
