    Thank you for writing this article. I never really thought about my illness this way. I just wanted to let you know that I posted the article on my Bipolar Bandit FB page, on Twitter @bipolar_bandit and on Pinterest.

    If you are on FB and interested in joining a closed group “Advocay for People with Mental Illnesses” please let me know and I will send you the link. I think we all would benefit from your ideas.

    Well said, Tom. And your article applies to every area of life, not just bipolar or depression. I think that everyone achieves Bipolar in Order at a different pace so one shouldn’t get discouraged if it seems to be taking too long. A work of art, a masterpiece, takes a long time to perfect, but eventually if gets completed. And that’s what each of us is, a masterpiece in the making.
    Awesome, Tom.

      Thanks Jeanette, You bring up a very important point. One of our lessons is about acceptance. Part of acceptance is we must accept that progress takes time You make that point beautifully in your comment.

    I very much resonated with you article…I’ve heard almost the same words about job choice. I finally did take a job that pushed me. While initially caused me some new episodes I ultimately found a happy medium, developed some skills and have lived without meds and without episodes outside normal range of ups and downs for 7 years.
