Become Limitless With Mental Illness (a repost and a reblog)

For those of you who do not follow The Bipolar Writer, I highly recommend checking out his blog. I can safely say it is one of the best blogs, or is the best blog out there about bipolar disorder, anxiety and mental illness in general.

I am honored to be a contributing writer on his blog. I apologize that some of my posts will appear on both my blog and his blog. Not everything on my blog will appear on his blog, of course.
