One of the earliest memories from my childhood is when you'd come home, I'd help you take your shoes and socks off. Memory is a funny thing though; it's not always accurate, but more importantly, and particularly in your case, it's oftentimes fleeting, and unreliable. You may not remember this, or at times fail to even understand, you have an illness called dementia.

Sana's knack for writing began at a young age. Along with studying politics and history at the University of Toronto, she has a degree in journalism from Humber College. She admires Alan Johnston, Mishal Hussain and Robert Fisk. She's been travelling the world since she was a baby thanks to her father, who worked for an airline. She likes keeping up-to-date with international politics. Her hobbies include photography and painting.

My name is Sana. I am 31 years old, mother to a little baby girl, and wife to a major techie. I'm also a writer, journalist and artist. And, as much as I dislike the usage of labels, you can add another label to my being. I am bipolar. Everyone's experience with their disorder is different, much like how we, as individuals, are so unique. I no longer want to be ashamed of being bipolar.
