any process of formation or growth; development:

the evolution of a person’s understanding.

Today is the day we say goodbye to what started out as a cute name, that upon reflection, promotes a negative stigma. Today we retire the name TheBipolarManiac and evolve to BipolarMe, in hopes of bringing a sense of normalcy to the everyday person’s perception of those with Bipolar Disorder or other mood disorders.

    Wow! This looks fantastic!

    I found you & this the site through Twitter. My blogging friend Yvette Hess tweeted your blog post today about why you don’t read certain blog posts. I didn’t read the former blog due to the name; it was nothing personal – I simply avoided any blog with titles like “madness” etc.

    I love the new concept and I will sign up to follow this blog. I hope you will follow me over at Birth of a New Brain ( where I promise to at least try to write much shorter posts! At least I only post 1x/week, well, typically! 🙂

    Take care,
