One of the neat things about WordPress is that there are built-in tools that can track which blogs are being read and what search terms have been used to find my blog. Of course it doesn’t collect any personal information, but it does show what the popular topics are and what people are looking for. Since I started writing this blog, the most common searches have been for just bipolar information in general. But there has been one subject in particular that has stood out more than others, and that is Bipolar Relationships. Apparently there are a lot of people struggling with either dealing with a bipolar spouse, or trying to be understood in their illness.
Everyone has their own story. There are questions being asked and searches for answers. People are making decisions are looking for assurances that they are the right ones. Some are trying to understand, others are looking for ways to explain. The Internet can be a powerful tool for finding and sharing information and it’s apparent that there is a need for both.
So this is an open invitation.
I’d like to ask that the readers here share their experiences relating to their bipolar relationships. There are successes to be celebrated, failures to be mourned, fears to be expressed, questions to be asked and frustrations to be aired. So today I’m making this an open forum. This is as anonymous or as public as you’d like. Comments can be moderated, so there will be no judgments, accusations or disparaging remarks. It doesn’t matter how well you think you write, it matters that others hear what you have to say.
You never know when your story will touch someone, or how you might be touched. I’m hopeful that there are those who are willing to post here and help us all realize that we truly are not alone.
I thank you all.
