I haven’t published any new info about mental disorders for some time on this blog, mostly because I really don’t have much time now. I do share some stuff on my facebook page pretty often, interesting things I find on pages I follow, if you want to check it out.
Anyway, this post is about a disorder I don’t experience personally and that is bipolar disorder. It belongs to the same category as depression and anxiety, that is mood disorders. As you can guess from the name, those are the ones affecting person’s mood. This is obviously simplified info, but it’s great start, if you want to educate yourself about this particular disorder.
My goal for this blog is to be a place where people can learn about depression, anxiety and also a place, where I can clear my head and leave all the thoughts that spin in my head most of the time. I’m also aware that there are many more mental health issues and invisible illnesses that I can’t write about, because I don’t experience them, but I still want people to understand them too, as I am trying all the time. Which is where my Facebook page comes in. My blog posts are shared there automatically, but I also share there articles or pictures I find on other pages on Facebook that I think are good and educational. In the future, I would like to share there things from around the net, not only from other pages on Facebook, I just don’t have time for it yet, because most of my time and energy right now goes to finishing my studies in time. But in the future, I want my Facebook page to be a place, where you can find help and support with your problems and also a place to learn. And a place where I share my oh-so-important thoughts and things I do, obviously :-). So if you want, go like it and it might lead you to other pages that might interest you and give you some more insight into the complicated world that is mental health and invisible illness.
