I have bipolar disorder and I hear voices that get worse when I am alone. When I get depressed I feel isolated. I have been able to stay out of the hospital for a while. I have been homeless before and lost everything, but I now I have my own apartment. I like to entertain people and I have recently been asked to join a local comedy club to do stand-up acts. I won first place in the Riverbend talent show last year doing comedy. I love to do sketch work as it has become a way for me to get away from reality and distract myself when I am lonely.
