    Courtney… I just want you to know what a contribution you are making to destigmatizing mental illness. Every time I teach the Family2Family class for NAMI (National Alliance on Mental Illness), more than half of my students (family members) have a loved one experiencing or diagnosed with Bipolar disorders. Next to having you talk to relatives who have relatives with Bipolar disorders, your blog (everydaybipolar.wordpress.com) is the next best thing.

    Be encouraged. You and your efforts matter.

    Cool. I am learning how to use this blog tool myself. I like the different pages. I’ll have to do that. I’m loving what I read so far. Like you, I want to educate and reduce/eliminate (I can hope and pray!) stigma.
