Edward J. Renehan: Announces on his blog that he is bi-polar
SOURCE: Renehan Blog (1-14-08)
As of January 2nd I have gone public with my diagnosis of bipolar/manic depressive disorder (type 2 bordering on type 1) - a diagnosis I received this past summer. This is an incurable and progressive - but nevertheless treatable - biochemical disorder from which I have evidently suffered for many years, perhaps since childhood. I had previously only written about this on a private section of my blog, but I have now opened up that section to public view, in the hope that by chronicling my problem, my treatment, and my hoped-for progress I may help others. I will of course continue to blog on many other topics as well, as and when my fast cycling attention is drawn to other topics (in short, all the time).
