Bipolar Hot Mess

Patient Leader

Bipolar II, chronic pain, and eating disorders are my main focus.I first tried blogging in 2011 with Ask A Bipolar and IBPF and loved it. Both also published me in their books. AaB's format is strictly Q&A and I wanted to write more about MY life with mental illness in a way that would help others feel less alone in their daily life. So, in 2012, I tried my luck blogging as the Bipolar Hot Mess. I've interviewed Julie Fast and Marya Horbacher. I also guest post on sites like Stigma Fighters, SIoS, Psych Central (also a Mental Health Hero 2013), and did an interview for David Susman, PhD. Julie Fast also interviewed me as well. The success of the blog means so much because I help so many.
