Five years ago I was swept off my feet by a lovely gentleman whose warped sense of humour matched my own. Shortly after, he was diagnosed as having Bipolar Disorder, or as we like to call it, bipolo disorder!

Leading the peripatetic life of a home and pet sitter can make maintaining our relationship challenging, even more so when, at times, one of us is suffering from bipolo depression and the other is many miles away clearing-up dog poo! Thanks to technology though, we are able to keep the lines of communication between us open on a daily basis, even if it’s just a text to say, goodnight my lovely.
