I need your help.
I am looking for success stories of people who have bipolar disorder.
Last year my mom told me, "David, I know 5 people with
bipolar disorder and I don't know anyone who's doing well."
As mom struggled to take back her life, I know there were times
when her mind would return to that one depressing fact: I don't know
anyone who's doing well …
I still hear, from people on the same uphill climb we faced, the
hopelessness I heard in my mom's voice, because they don't know anyone
who's doing well …
Over the past year I've spoken to hundreds of people living with
bipolar disorder, and I've come to realize that having bipolar disorder
doesn't mean your life is over. In fact, there are many people with
bipolar disorder who are doing very well.
There are MANY success stories and we need to hear
These stories provide inspiration, motivation and guidance. Like
signposts for fellow travelers, they hold out the hope we all need to stay
on the path to wellness.
My goal is to share these success stories. I will be profiling both
people with bipolar disorder AND bipolar supporters-adults and children.
Do you feel that you're doing well? Maybe you've found your way through
the maze of doctors, medications, institutional red tape and unhelpful
bureaucracy; maybe you're in a relationship you never thought was
possible; maybe you've found a fulfilling career or you're in school
training for one; or maybe you wake up in the morning glad to be alive.
Would you like to share your success story with your fellow travelers?
If you are profiled, I will feature your story in an article posted
online. You can write it yourself or work with one of our editors. You may
be interviewed by me and by local or national media. The extent of your
involvement is up to you, but the first step is to complete the form
