Hey guys! Today I am so excited to announce that I’ve been accepted to become a collaborator on The Bipolar Mental Health Blog! Started by James Edgar Skye just barely a year ago, it has grown to 8,000+ followers and a roster of thirty contributers, now including yours truly. It’s an amazing blog, all featuring stories and encouraging thoughts from people who deal with bipolar disorder. Its an important blog, dealing with real issues. Mental health is so important and it needs to be discussed, not by celebrity MD’s on a talk show. But by real people. I am so grateful that James Edgar Skye has started this excellent collaboration and worked as hard as he has on it. I’ve been reading it for months and now I have the chance to give something back, which is truly incredible. Being accepted is without question one of the proudest moments of my life.
I’ll still be discussing mental illness here at Groovy Glasses, I still want to continue the “Fireside Talks” series. But I’ll be doing the majority of it on The Bipolar Mental Health Blog. I highly encourage you all to check it out, hit the follow button if you’re interested. We all need to hear some of these stories. We will never truly become whole as a society until we can listen to the thoughts and struggles of others.
Anyway, here is a repost of my debut article, I hope you all enjoy it. I want to take this moment and thank you all. Thank you for reading my previous thoughts on mental illness, thank you for your comments, thank you for hitting the like button, thank you for making me feel confident in my own voice.
