My Top 10 Favorite Mental Health Humor Cartoons On:

Bipolar Disorder

Mental Health Humor is taking part in the 4th annual Psych Central Blog Party for World Mental Health Day.  My cartoon from The Family Stew series shows how some of my day-to-day battles with living my Bipolar Disorder and how it feels to me – an ugly blob like Beastly thing that sucks the joy out of life!  The gas it gives off is mixed with emotional turmoil. All the while, I’m trying to tame a beast with a feather duster!  And avoid it biting off my head…Yup. I think that sums up my  emotional health as to treating my Bipolar Disorder.  I did leave out that I use medications for treatment. But that is another story.

First, I wanted to share my mental condition in dealing with bipolar as I see it as a cartoonist. My 2nd challenge being color blind was to make sure my Bipolar Beast did not look like a huge snot.
