After reading her blogs I have finally realized I am not alone in my struggles and not only does she explain every topic so in depth. Not only does she add her own insight and experience, but she uses cited information providing facts and experiments. Of all the blogs I have read, hers is the only one that brings a positive outlook which gives me hope and keeps me pushing on and giving it my all. If she can do it, I hold all hope that I can as well.
This blog is so informative and helpful. I do not have bipolar but my mother does and it helps me so much with understanding her disorder and just the reasons why she acts the way she does. Before, doctors would always give me such boring facts that i couldnt even understand. but when I read anns blog, she makes it come to life and actually makes it easy for people to learn about bipolar and make them feel like a group that understands eachother instead of individuals dealing with problems that they think they are alone in.
I appreciate everything she has spoken about, not only has it let me understand my mother, it has brought us closer and her more comfortable to be herself around me and talk about how she
Comments: This blog is so elaborate and she needs to write a book or something. It is all great information and I like how she answers real peoples questions. even one of my emails that i sent her is on her blog and it makes me feel like someone is listening. She is a great woman!
Ann makes bipolar easy to deal with and lets people know what its really like to have our kind of disorder. She is a very strong dedicated girl. Theres not a blog that goes by that i not only read, but learn so much from. I have gained alot from coming across her blog.
I think she is fantastic and should keep on writing. By far my favorite.
Comments: I feel Ann Hertel should win the award because she has been through so many trials in her life, many of which would have gotten the strongest person down. She not only continued to fight to help herself, but she also spends her time helping others to overcome difficulties in their lives. It takes a strong dedicated person to accomplish what she has done !!!!!
She is one of the hardest working people I know. In addition to going to school full time and earning extremely high marks (normally straight A's, though she might have a B+ this semester), she works in a job that is not understanding of what she has to go through, so she just has to "deal with it." She also helps others (both with and without bipolar disorder) understand what exactly it is by talking with them about it and what she goes through on a daily basis. She very actively promotes understanding of it on a daily basis, not only through her blog, but also (and more often) through personal relationships she forms with people on a daily basis. She is truly one of the most wonderful people I have ever met, and deserves to be recognized for what she has done.
