The Anatomy of This Bipolar

Anatomy Of My Bipolar Disorder

Why “The anatomy of bipolar disorder” Mental Health Humor cartoon? The simple answer is it was a suggested topic during National Health Blog Post party for a national web site.


The idea was simple as I renamed some basic anatomy with our illness. I look at the following:

  • my eyesight dimming – “glossy dim alert eyes”
  • instead of a happy smile, I replaced it with a “semi-apathetic smile”
  • my good health with a “well-nourished waistline”.
  • a bipolar topical T-shirt.
  • “drug-induced tremors”.
  • Orthopedic water-resistant shoes
