Wow, my blog was given another award! This time, Living the Scientific Life was recognized by Psych Central as being one of the top ten blogs to go to to read about bipolar disorder, also known as manic-depressive illness. The top ten list for bipolar disorder was compiled with input from readers, one of their associate editors, Sandra, and by John Grohol, PsyD. According to John, “[This award] reflects the excellence in regular writing of entries related to this mental health concern that we feel is consistent and worthy of people’s time.”
As my long-time readers know, I have battled this disorder for most of my life (and mostly in secret). Even though a quick glance through my blog will show you that I do not write exclusively about bipolar disorder, one of my goals is to write about this disorder (and also about depression) as often as possible, particularly when there is new research to summarize and translate for you. Thanks Sandra, and thanks to Doctor John and his readers for the recognition!
