Thanks all for your comments.

DW - anything I write can be used by anyone, just include where you found it if you don't mind.

Jane - thanks so much for your comment. Things are much better, but still not anywhere close to being "normal".

Hi Jon, I've posted the bipolar-connection article on my blog. I put it up on Saturday, Sept.9th.
I hope all is well with you & your family.

Isn't that the truth!!! Everyone I can think of is/was that way...even Einstein! I've been thinking a lot lately - I wouldn't give up my disease if I had a choice.

Hi, I'm stopping by to read your new post. I assume things are tough right now. You are in my thoughts & prayers.

I hear what your'e saying...BUT
Not all crazy people are creative. I think it's 50/50. Also, not all creative people are crazy. Finally, God ain't crazy and HE IS THE MOST CREATIVE PERSON THERE IS.
Peace and Love

HI!

I wrote a research paper on Bipolar Disorder and Creativity--mostly, because it hit so close to home. Kay Redfield Jamison's book -Touched by Fire--really touches upon almost every aspect of those people who are a manic-depressive and have been highly creative. Interesting stuff.
