Introducing Her Bipolar LifeLiving with mental illness is rarely easy. Everyone faces their own challenges, but perhaps being diagnosed with a serious mental illness — like bipolar disorder — is most difficult when you’re younger.

So that’s why I’m pleased to introduce Her Bipolar Life, with Kat Dawkins. I’ll let her explain the purpose of the blog in her own words…

This is the chronicling of Kat — and all young Bipolar women — navigating through life a little more creatively than most of the female population. It makes us stronger, it makes us more interesting, it makes us who we are.

How, as Bipolar women, do we blend the inevitable difficulties of Bipolar with the necessary demands of life — work, education, dating and marriage, relationships, children, self-care, body image? We will explore these issues and then some. I will provide young Bipolar women with something to relate to and something to learn from.

A new bipolar blog from a woman’s perspective focused on women’s issues?

Sounds like a valuable addition to the Psych Central family (as well as for the Internet as a whole!). Please give her a warm Psych Central welcome over on her blog today, Her Bipolar Life.
