Description Suzan Arisoy has had Bi-polar Disorder for twenty years. Over the course of those years, she wrote some poems that she feels describe the essence of her experience from 'the inside out'.They are published here, with some writing about each one. Suzan wanted to explain the poems, and where she was at, at the time of writing them.Suzan hopes her poetry will not only resonate with people who have experienced something similar - but may help other, especially health professionals to understand what it feels like to live with Bi-polar Disorder.She said, 'If what I have written helps just one person in any way - then I have made a difference. These poems mean a lot to me as they represent the blood, sweat and tears of twenty years. If that blood and sweat, and those tears help someone else in their distress then it hasn't all been for nothing. I believe that the mot positive thing to come out of this illness would be to transform the pain into a light that shines the way for someone in need - or that sheds some light on a difficult subject and changes someone's perception.'
