I’m writing this on a dreary Sunday morning as the sounds of Nickelodeon’s “The Fairly OddParents” blare in the background. (At least it’s not SpongeBob. I must be grateful.) When you have young children, and there’s the opportunity for the family to sleep late on a weekend, you can bet the kids will wake up WAY earlier than they ever do on a school day. 6:00 A.m.? Sure, why not! Call it Murphy’s law!
This will be a short but sweet post to spread the word about a new blog written by Wendy K. Williamson and Honora Rose titled “Two Bipolar Chicks” on Blogger. The blog is associated with their recently published book “Two Bipolar Chicks Guide to Survival: Tips for Living With Bipolar Bipolar”.
Unfortunately I’m even more unfamiliar with the workings of Blogger than I am with WordPress. As Blogger won’t allow me to reblog over to WordPress, here’s the direct link:
This book is cool for many reasons, but especially because it’s up-to-date, hip, funny. The authors, who both have bipolar, offer varied suggestions for self-care including bright light therapy, & a short section on essential oils. (Please see my last post for more misc. info. about using essential oils for anxiety & bipolar *in addition* to meds: https://dyaneharwood.wordpress.com/2014/09/19/the-bipolar-blogger-network-why-i-smell-like-salsa/)
I also loved Wendy’s first memoir, the bestselling “I’m Not Crazy Just Bipolar”.
Wendy has been one of my key writing mentors. She has given me such useful advice that I suggested she should turn it into her next book. She runs a successful writer’s group where she constantly learns from other writers of all levels. Nice!
The Two Bipolar Chicks make good use of Twitter, tweeting about different topics relevant to those of us affected by b.p., as well as tweeting about garden variety topics that often make me laugh.

So that’s it…short but sweet as promised!
And speaking of sweet, be well, my sweet friends, & see you Friday!
