Chris H.

United States
My name is Chris Hempel. In October 2007, my husband and I received life-threatening news about our cholesterol - but our lives weren't in danger.

For many months, I'd known...

I'm 57, and I just came out of denial of having bipolar about 6 months ago.  Recently, I came to the point that I had a problem and wanted help.   I have a dual diagnosis – Alcoholic and Bipolar.    Whenever I felt like I was crawling out of my skin, I would start drinking and drink until I either passed out or I ran out of wine.  This went on for years...

Joseph Potocny Patient ExpertFacebook

Oceanside, California
I was born 11/17/1944, you do the math. I have been diagnosed with AD & FTD. I run my blog to tell what it is like in This World, that I call My World. Hopefully it gives some insights to caregivers and the medical profession as to who and what we really are and what we do know. I tell it as I see it and feel it and do not hold back. No political correctness here, no time for that BS. I had...
