A Six-Word Memoir® is the story of your life—some part of it or all of it—told in exactly six words.

In classrooms and boardrooms, churches and synagogues, veteran's groups and across the dinner table, Six-Word Memoirs have become a powerful tool to catalyze conversation, spark imagination or simply break the ice.

Here on Six Words, we offer a simple platform to share the short, sharp story of your life, as well as provide daily prompts to share your six-word takes on the topics of our times.

More than half a million short stories have been shared here and on SmithTeens. Read more about six.

So give six a try—and make your words count.

I mourn my old self, but...

by H2point0 on December 5, 2012   |  FacebooktwitterTumblr

My Bipolar meds help mostly. I'm hardly ever depressed anymore and not anything like before. But still, I miss my old (manic) self. I miss being hyper productive and high as a kite happy. I miss staying up for three days. The creative spark, that still comes, but not so easily or fully. I miss my old me. But I know staying on my medication is important. So I will. And I'll cry sometimes while I take the pills.
