manic depressongs




I’m back to ye olden times when I was known to post up to twice a day! I wasn’t even hypomanic nor manic but simply high on the novelty of blogging.

I’m tickled pink that that I was able to persuade my pal Blahpolar, who’s halfway across the world in South Africa, to include my song “More Than Bipolar” in her latest post.

She calls me “Dyane Disorder”, which I think is hilarious, but she has also christened me as “FRYANE” due to my rather sycophantic, nay, make that groupie-ish devotion of Stephen Fry. So please read her missive – she has all kinds of goodies in this post and I think something will appeal to you!


Dyane “Fryane” Disorder Leshin-Harwood (the 1st!)


In which I spoof, parody, rip off and fuck up the following songs:

Loser Closer (NIN)
Anhedonia Barcelona (Freddie Mercury and thingummy)
Panic Manic Monday (the Bangles)
You’re simply depressed the best (Tina Turner)

But first, an original song by the blogger who threatened to sell me to the $¢ientologists if I didn’t include it. Introducing Dyane Disorder featuring DJ Dog…

Singin’ My Song “More Than Bipolar”


“More Than Bipolar” by Dyane Leshin-Harwood

I don’t know – why should I care? 

About all the times that life was unfair

It’s so different now, I need to let it all go

Or else I’m gonna blow

So don’t call me bipolar ’cause it’s not my name

Can’t you see I’m a person –  there is no shame

And we have stigma that’s to blame…

I’m more than bipolar 

I’m more than bipolar

It hurts sometimes

And I feel all alone

What can I do?

Don’t want to pick up the phone

Time to break a sweat, cause this mood’s not over yet

And all you need to know…

Don’t call me bipolar ’cause it’s not my name

Can’t you see I’m a person, there is no shame

And we have stigma that’s to blame

I’m more than bipolar

I’m more than bipolar


Dyane’s memoir Birth of a New Brain – Healing from Postpartum Bipolar Disorder with a foreword by Dr. Walker Karraa (Transformed by Postpartum Depression: Women’s Stories of Trauma and Growth) will be, fingers & toes crossed, published by Post Hill Press in Fall, 2016.
