Hello and welcome to skinkittin is mental.  My name is Jennifer and I would like to take you inside my bipolar mind.  Come along with me on the embarrassing and shame filled journey from major depression to hypomania in this thrilling account of a spinster and her feeble attempts at happiness.

Triggers, too many to count. I write a lot and edit very little.  These accounts include raw language and a subject matter currently considered taboo.  Read with discretion.
