Backpacking and Bipolar II. Taking Manic Depression on tour.
In the last four days my readership has doubled. To all the old-guard who have read and (hopefully) enjoyed the content so far – Thank you very much for your loyalty. To you new folks – Thanks for coming along and I hope that you enjoy many more posts to come. I’m here to interact and learn from people, as much as spout off my own opinions and experiences so, please,
I love to hear from you, especially you experienced Bipolar folks. Reading about advanced coping strategies and experiences has left me very well prepared and educated about some of the pitfalls in dealing with this disease and I just have to say: Thanks a lot.
So, on this auspicious day – are there any requests? I’m going to try and ramp up the quality of the posts as it is but are there subjects that currently leave gaping holes in the coverage I provide? Is there anything that you’re curious about or that you feel I’ve not explained fully either about my situation or my experience of the illness? Come at me, yo. Ahem..
As a final point I’d just like to plug another website that I’m involved in to try and get the word out further. I set up and have been joined in running a peer-to-peer support initiative to try and get people FREE, INFORMED and UNDERSTANDING support when unavailable through the regular channels. The more people we get involved the more likely it is that a buddy system will develop. I already know of one such relationship where two users have found each other as an excellent source of support and regularly help each other through the dark times.
Check it out and please, spread the word. I don’t link posts from this blog and we don’t allow other posts on there. It exists PURELY to try and make more support available from people who actually GET IT.
All the best,
