When I feel depressed I sometimes become so self-absorbed that I forget to thank the people who have made me feel better...even if it's just with a kind word, thoughtful comments, or an email. After I wrote the following paragraphs, I felt so much better that I decided that Thanking People can actually be perceived as a bipolar wellness activity. Here goes...
In response to my post Mind-Body Connection, Part 2, I would like to thank the following: Mariposa, I'm linking to her profile since she's got a few different blogs that might interest you, and she's a new reader who is pursuing meditation, physical activities and seeing a spiritual director in her quest for wellness; Aimee, who has tried both meditation and biofeedback and has an interesting take on it; my cousin Cami Black, an actress, who is finally receiving some much deserved support for her career; and Syd, my dear friend, ace supporter, and virtual sister.
I also want to thank JayPeeFreely, who is always there with kind words of support. And he even nominated me for this amazing honor, Should Be Famous, and I was feeling so down at the time that I never really thanked him or Patrick and Cooper who initiated this blog. Thanks so very much! The blog is a lovely idea!
Finally, thanks to: Pistol Pete, a new reader and kind fellow from Necessary Therapy; my pal Dootz from Mead on Mantattan and Lullabye; Marja from Roller Coaster, my very first reader who embodies kindness and provides a wealth of advice; Nanci from My Life with Bipolar Disorder, who's so supportive; Dream Writer from Coming Out of the Dark, Tony C. whose comments make me smile;Dirk from Dirkmonster, who laughed at my bipolar song lyrics and is thus dear to my heart, and Roanne from Own Your Own Health, who is a role model for recovery (from stroke), and sent me a poem that made me cry (It's posted on her blog).
To all, sincere thanks!
