New Huffington Post Article: Always Waiting for the Other Shoe to Drop!



It’s definitely not a manic Monday around here, my friends.

Anything but.

At least there have been no more The Kraken Lady adventures…yet.

I may see her at tomorrow night’s ballet class. Of course I’ll let you know if anything exciting happens, and I’ll pack the poop in case I need to do an impromptu self-facial!

On the brighter side of life, I got an email notifying me that a Huffington Post editor approved my latest submission! As always, comments, likes, shares, and checks payable to Dyane Harwood are always welcome, and they’ll all create good karma for you!

See you at the end of the week – this post doesn’t count! 😉 

take care,


Dyane’s memoir Birth of a New Brain – Healing from Postpartum Bipolar Disorder will be published by Post Hill Press in 2017.

    • Thanks darling Van! 🚐
      I love the special emojis you picked just for me!!!! If I could I’d give you a bouquet of these: 💐

    • Thanks, beautiful Michelle! I’ve done a radio show before, but it was 20 years ago when I worked as a personal trainer and the topic was fitness! I had callers phone in with questions (not my idea – the producer’s!) and I set up some friends to call me with wacky questions. Unprofessional? Maybe, but it was fun! Xo

    • Thanks my sweet Lady Samina!!! (I can’t help it – I loved that Lady Mary blog performance you did so much! I need a sequel!)

  1. Another great article on HuffPost! I’m so happy for you! You are helping to fight the stigma. So great that you overcame the anxiety and went to jury duty. Thanks for writing about that…I’ve served on two juries and you gave me an idea for things I can write on my new blog. Jury duty is a fascinating way to experience the reality of our legal system…yikes!

    • Thanks, Sharon – you’ve been a fantastic supporter! I’m totally thrilled that you’ll be writing on your new blog with your idea! I read your latest post about your upcoming book and how things are coming together (HURRAAH!) but I will return to comment. Lately I’ve been I reading blogs late at night on my Kindle, and it’s not conducive for writing comments unless it’s one or two words! 😉

      Anyway, I’m so excited for you with your book and other projects!
      Rock on! Xo

  2. Reblogged this on Just Plain Ol' Vic and commented:
    Hooray Dyane for getting another post submitted/approved by The Huffington Post. Please take a look and see what insight Dyane has provided us this time!

    • Thanks so much, Susan!
      I belatedly replied to your other comment on my “The Kraken Lady” post with a *new* idea for
      The Kraken Lady, and you inspired me to come up with it! 😉 💗

      And for you:🐦🐧 🌷

    • Thanks, darlin’. It’s a bit surreal, but hell, I’ve been a freelance writer for 20 years, so I’ll take it!!!! I got an email from The Mighty telling me they’ll publish my postpartum bipolar article (although they rejected the ECT one…) and DBSA agreed to share my ECT post, which will cause more haters to write, but I don’t care! 😉 XOXOXO YOU!

    • Thanks my sweet one!!!! I’ll be getting over to your blog today or tomorrow –
      Spring Break really messed up my routine!
      Love you! 💗

  3. Printing out all your articles, gave ECT a third read, now printed out this one, visit, share on fb, comment could not find ‘like’ button.

    • Hey there my friend. Forgive me for not being clear…in order to like The Huffington Post article you need to press the Facebook icon thanks so much for your support as always I’m still under the weather today with something that feels like allergies or a cold or both! I will email you soon!

  4. Great article with interesting links. I too find fear quite dominant in my bipolar. I tried to comment on Huffington Post but I had to sign in and couldn’t find where to sign in

    • Thanks so much, Pieces! Huffington Post makes it very confusing to comment! I hate the fact that people are required to use Facebook, for one thing, instead of something user friendly like Disqus. I totally appreciate your trying to comment – that makes me happy! :)))))
