Oh Boy yay… It’s Monday …
I don’t know how the time goes by so quickly and I can swear it was just an hour ago that it was 4 am and I was contemplating what to do for a mental moment today and now just look how the time once again got away from me.
I am starting to think the time and the socks are in this together. It;s a diabolical plan to conquer the world, one minute and one sock at a time…
Wow you must think I am crazy.
Which brings me to the actual mental 3:56.
I try to do these mental moments in a way that is humorous and sometimes there is a lesson and sometimes its just plain silly fun, but the key point is for you to stop and take a moment and assess your own mental state and get a little break from the monotony of the day.
That’s true, that’s how it all started.. kinda. It’s too long of a story for a moment so we can talk about that another day.
All that aside, the bottom line is I am trying to get the word out about mental illness and the need to stop stigma and in particular, Bipolar Disorder.
I choose to focus on that because as most of you know, I have Bipolar Disorder.
But the stigma associated with being mentally ill covers all mental illness, just some more than others. Bipolar is one that is mistreated in many ways. The people who have it, are mistreated in many ways.
Stigma, comes from fear. We fear what we do not understand.
So for a moment, every once in a while, I want to remind everyone what these moments are really about and where they really come from (the mind of a person with mental illness. Cute and funny I know, :-) but crazy like …whatever just the same)
Although I am not an expert or educated in the field of psychology and psychiatry more than my own travels in the system and treatment, the clip you are about to see presents Bipolar Disorder rather well in my opinion.
And believe me I have seen a LOT of them. So I give it to, you just in case you really want to know, what IS Bipolar in general terms.
Maybe later this week I will make it a little more personal although those of you that are my regular peeps… I am pretty sure know much about my personal bipolar, even if you don’t know you do.
Alas the day is only getting later.

I saw a lady who had written a book and her title (personal title on the screen, not book title) was Expert Bipolar Patient. What do you think about that? I was oddly troubled and amused at the same time. Kinda like being…bipolar
