My Big Fat Bipolar Disorder, is a new blog that I intend, over time, to develop into a diary or memoir of my experiences with bipolar disorder. I am a woman, with a Master's in psychology, who was diagnosed with the disorder more than 20 years ago. I've learned a lot about how to manage (and not manage) my disorder during that time, and I believe that sharing my experiences might be helpful to others.
A few years ago I created The Manic Depressive Blog, a resource that has articles on bipolar disorder as well as commentary from my personal experience. It is now going to be solely an article and comment format. This new blog, My Big Fat Bipolar Disorder, is more of a creative outlet for my personal experiences, and an attempt to:
- collect and post data on the ebb and flow of my mental illness over time
- start conversations about everyday life with bipolar disorder through reader comments
