Nod if You Hear Me: A Bipolar Blog is Afton (In the Pink)'s excellent diary of her life with Bipolar Disorder, where she discusses the trials and tribulations of medication land, and her desires to have more happiness and fulfillment. She also shares the happiness and fulfillment she does have, and she brings lots of humor to her posts, so it's never a dull read over there. You will enjoy Afton's blog, so be sure to check it out.
Define Functioning is an excellent blog, where Backward E gets input from the readers, who contribute, in a community of sorts, all about, well, "functioning". What does functioning mean to you? How does it occur in your life? Is it overrated? Some of us are considered "higher functioning", and this blog is the first place where I've been able to discuss that with other people in the same boat. For that reason, I love this blog, and I think it is noteworthy. You should stop by and join in on the conversation if you happen to have a mental illness.
Stalled at 12 is Mary's (Frank and Mary) hilarious, and incredibly well-written blog that I love. "Witty" is the word that comes to mind whenever I think of Mary. She has a way with words, and a mind that spins an interesting story out of a tiny tidbit of conversation. I think Mary will write a book someday, and people will buy it. In the meantime, you should visit her blog where she discusses her illness sometimes, but the funny things that make up life all the time. Mary takes the time to leave many thoughtful comments here which I appreciate too.
Yin and Yang is my friend Kate's blog on Schizophrenia, life, and Buddhism. She is a brilliant artist who sometimes posts her artwork on her blog or sells it online. She is also a writer who enjoys expounding on interesting topics, often related to Buddhism and living a fulfilling life. I admire Kate's tenacity and how she overcomes adversity. She is a gifted person, and I think you will find some interesting pieces of writing on her blog.
Confessions of a Serial Insomniac is Pandora's blog. I'm pretty sure she has more than 200 followers, but I couldn't find anything on her blog that said so for sure, so I'm giving her the award anyway, because anybody can always use more readers. Pandora has crafty, witty writing, and she's very funny too. In fact, what I like about everybody I've given this blog award to is their wit and their sense of humor. Pandora tells it like it is, and pulls no punches. She says what she thinks and doesn't give a damn if someone is going to disagree. I love that about her. I think you would enjoy her blog.
And now these winners can pass the Liebster Award on to some other folks....and we'll all get to check out some new blogs...be sure to come back here eventually too though, of course - I hope!
