In Good Company

Today I was reading through my blog list when I came across a very exciting post. My blog pal, Meg at Raising Bipolar, was listed as one of the top 5 Bipolar Blogs on Psychology Degree Online. As I was doing a happy dance for her, I read on and found out that I too was nominated on this top 5 list along with my other pal Marybeth at Ask A Bipolar.

I’m thrilled to be in such good company and know that my blog is reaching others and having a positive impact. Thank you Psychology Degree Online, you made my day!

Here’s what they said about my blog:

The diagnosis of bipolar disorder often has life-changing consequences for both the patient and his or her family. One way that people with bipolar disorder cope with the emotional highs and lows, the various drug and therapy regimens, and relationships with family and friends is to maintain a blog chronicling their progress and treatment. We've searched the web to find 50 of the best bipolar disorder blogs.

My Son Has 2 Brains
: This is a blog by a mother of three boys, the eldest being recently diagnosed with bipolar disorder.

  • Why we love it: She offers intensely personal writing about the toll bipolar disorder takes on a family.
  • Favorite Post: Wanting Accommodations.

Time to do a happy dance!!!
