Joel Sax 2011 Mental Health Hero Cartoon-A-Thon

One morning in 1994, I woke up at the crack of dawn and told my wife “I am sick.” For years I avoided taking medications for my depression and anxiety. But there was this drug called Prozac and I was willing to give it a try. It cured me instantly.

11 years later, I texted my wife with my last will and testament, then agreed to check into a hospital where I promptly berated the staff for not delivering my diabetes meds on schedule. My doctor asked “Has anyone told you that you might be bipolar?”

Today I run Bipolar_Blogs on Twitter & Pax Nortona at http://paxnortona.notfrisco2.com/.

My wife and I have decided that I will not accept Social Security as long as there are others who need it more.

Bonus Drawing from my 8yr old Precious for Joel:
