I entered my first competition last weekend which was great fun!

I always knew I was bipolar but it took 22 years for diagnosis. It was a long process as there were drug/alcohol problems to rule out.

It was to capture 24 hours in Bristol, my time slot was early morning. Bristol’s basically a non stop party!
