About This Site

Jeff Thunderbird Falls I’m Jeff Reid, and I have bipolar disorder and borderline personality disorder. I’ve dealt with mental illness since I was ten years old. I have lived with bipolar disorder since I was a teenager, though I wasn’t properly diagnosed until 1998, when I was 32 years old. My borderline personality disorder diagnosis is much more recent, but I suspect I have been living with it since my teenage years as well. I live in Alaska, and this site will feature talks on mental health issues done while I hike in the Alaskan wilderness or on the trails in Anchorage, Alaska. Hope you enjoy the beautiful scenery! And I hope you benefit from the talks as well. 🙂
