What Topics Should I Write in February?

I always have a good working list of topics I want to discuss on The Bipolar Writer blog. Often some of my blog posts are random thoughts that pop into my head about my journey with mental illness. But, it’s a new month. I thought why not try something new in the month of February.

Are there any topics you want to see me discuss on The Bipolar Writer?

If so let me know. I am happy to write about anything related to mental illness. I have two really good things. Experience and opinions about mental health topics. Drop me comment or two about what you want to see here on The Bipolar Writer blog. It can be anything I can connect with my experiences with a mental illness or even off the wall topics you want my opinion on.

  1. My granddaughter has OCD. She got sick when she was only 4 years old. She is now 20 and has found it impossible to stay at a job or be around too many people. Her biggest fear is the wind and people.

    1. Are you asking me to write a topic? The worst thing in that situation is to give up on that person. It’s hard because that person might have already given up and you have to get them to seek help. That is the most important thing that you can do.

      1. I don’t know where the person is at with respect to suicide. They’re not talking about it. But they did bring it up recently….that in the past they had thought of it. How do I engage them to talk some more to me about it. Can I be bold and ask them directly about suicide? Or should I be more subtle. Or should I just wait and be there is they need to talk? I would be really interested in a blog post about this and how to encourage someone to talk to you…maybe specifically about suicide.

      2. When it comes to suicidal person it’s tough. I would be direct because being subtle might be too little. You have to know how bad it is right now. I believe that I wrote something recently that might be of help. It was about suicidal thoughts.

  2. How about an introductory definition with examples to what bipolar is in the first place, for those who have no fucking clue or think it is the same thing as mood swings.

      1. Yeah. I actually just know the psychiatrist’s dictionary definition: depression and then mania.

        But I would love to hear about the details.

        I know that sounds horrible.

        As a side note, I don’t know how you can bring yourself to validate your suffering by sharing its information with others.

        But I guess to each his own.

      2. I am not trying to validate my suffering. I am working to share my experience in hopes it helps others. I really don’t mind sharing my suffering because it’s been something I have lived through. I guess you have live through it to understand.

  3. Hi I would like to read even just a simple explanation about the thin line between sadness and depression, if there’s any. Thank you. 🙂

  4. Do you find that medications are improving? Meaning, just as anti-depressants have improved – they work better at maintaining a feeling of normalcy – are bi-polar medications better at achieving a feeling of normalcy? What are your thoughts and experiences?~kim

  5. Everyone handles fear & anxiety differently. You’ve written about ways to cope with anxiety & some very good tips too. How about addressing fear-terror-extreme social fear? I know how I cope & what works for me but what works for you?
