Dr. Fink and I co-host two blogs – Bipolar Beat (this blog), and our original Bipolar Blog. Although most content is shared between the blogs, we include some unique content on each. Bipolar Beat, for example, is the home of the biweekly series Bipolar Disorder Medication Spotlight. One of the most popular areas on our Bipolar Blog is Share Your Bipolar Story, where we encourage visitors to post their stories and insights and read and comment on stories that others have posted. Currently, we have over 30 stories and look forward to hosting many more.
