Sooooooo, my friends, I usually just post once a week, but I can’t help posting once more.

I’ve gotten into a relatively new habit of checking out the Word Press Freshly Pressed selections.

On Thursday I spotted this post in the line-up:

While I was genuinely glad that the topic of bipolar disorder attracted the attention of the WordPress editorial staff, I was also disappointed.

One thought on “Do YOU think bipolar disorder is a gift?

  1. Thank you so much for the follow and for the reblog!

    I was overwhelmed by the amount of comments made in response to my “bipolar” post that I haven’t read them all yet! (I usually read any comments right away and I reply to them within a day or two.) It’s amazing how this topic has touched a nerve among my blogging friends – I didn’t expect it.

    I hope that you’re doing well and that you have a blast with your new blog.
    take care, Dyane 🙂
