The Best of Her Bipolar Life
As I mentioned in my last post, the final Her Bipolar Life blog is this Wednesday, June 18, 2014.
In this second to last entry, I’d like to reflect on the last year and a half-long journey we’ve shared together here on PsychCentral.com.
According to the readers, here are the Top 8 posts from this blog:
1. How Do I Help Someone Who Is Suicidal?
“It’s important to know that it may not always be obvious that someone is considering suicide.”
2. Suicide Prevention Hotlines: Saving Lives
“Talking with someone that has training and empathy for people at risk for suicide is a very effective tool to prevent those with mental illness from harming themselves.”
3. I Was Diagnosed with Bipolar: Now What?
“Being diagnosed with a disorder as mysterious and stigmatized as bipolar can be scary and even devestating.”
4. Bipolar Disorder and Menopause
“Menopause always gave me a sense of anxiety, born from my mother and aunts, exacerbated because I have been diagnosed with mental illness.”
5. Stressed Out: How Stress Affects Our Physical and Mental Health
“I realize that life is never going to be easy. I need to let go, and be okay with that. I will always experience challenges, and I must learn how to cope in order to have a better quality of life.”
6. The Top 5 Most Ignorant Opinions on Bipolar Disorder
“Modern society has become a place where everyone thinks they are an expert on everything. Just take a look at Twitter.”
7. Is Medical Cannabis An Option for Bipolar Patients?
“New research reveals that cannabis use among patients with bipolar I disorder showed improvement in areas such as processing speed, attention, and working memory.”
8. The Biggest Warning Signs of Mental Illness in Children
“Knowing how to spot the signs of mental illness in a young person is difficult. Many parents assume that their child is “going through a stage” with hopes that the issues will go away on their own.”
Be sure to continue to follow me on my home site, Kat Galaxy Blog, after the 18th.
