About Trav

Obviously there is a lot more to a person than an affliction. Nevertheless, this blog is mainly about living with bipolar (and probably some Lesbian/Gay/Bisexual/Trans (LGBT) issues as well). I will talk about anything else that comes to mind, too. I do also realise that I’m not an authority on anything (including being bipolar).

Here are some basic statistics: I’m a 43 year-old gay male. I’m legally married to a wonderful guy and we have three dogs and a house and all that. I live in Toronto, Ontario, Canada and I vote Liberal (that’s a Canadian political party). I’m not religious and I’m not a fan of non-conventional medicine. I am a fan of science fiction.

I’m a computer programmer. As you might guess having bipolar complicates working but my job reviews have mostly been positive. Everything depends on my meds.

Today my meds are working great. I’m going to write a post about it. Plus my mood is up (but not too up).

    There’s a thread going on my blog on triggers, on a caregiver’s side. I’d love to you your input, if you have a few moments to spare…
    Thanks again for the transparency you show in your blog. It’s inspiring.

    Best of luck to you, Trav. And understand that I don’t mind homosexuals despite my distaste at homosexuality itself. A guy I followed recently, bipolar bear, kind of kicked me out of his blog cause he asked what I thought about homosexuality in an article. Sad… But at least you found your soulmate. Take care.

      I try to take a nuanced view to getting along. The area where I live is a very multicultural one. I know that a lot of people don’t like the fact that I am gay, and they don’t like the fact that I own dogs. I have to be honest that there are many people with customs and practices that I find distasteful, too. However, no one says we have to be just like one another. What we do have to do is give each other space to live. Where I live, for the most part, that is what happens.
