It is Saturday afternoon and while I was researching the Internet, I discovered Health Line’s “2018 Best Bipolar Blogs” list. Curiosity got the best of me and I clicked on the link in order to see who made the list.
I excitedly began scrolling through chose best bipolar disorder blogs. There was the bipolar blog from Psych Central. The psychcentral.com has a specific blog that I contribute to called Mental Health Discoveries.
Health Line’s 2018 Best Bipolar Blogs Award to Life Conquering
Scroll, scroll, scroll. Oh my goodness! The first thing I saw was the Life Conquering logo on the left then a marvelous write-up of my blog on the right. I did a double take. I was so excited! I am just super honored to be on the Best Bipolar Disorder Blogs list. My passion, hard work and patience have paid off.
The award is displayed on the landing/front page of the Life Conquering Blog. Scroll down to the end of the page and you will see all of my blog awards.
Blog award dedicated to a Father and a Veteran
This weekend is perfect to dedicate this award to my late father, Don Pierce. He was diagnosed with a mental illness called PTSD after serving in the Vietnam War as a Military Police officer.
I miss our times on the back deck talking about the latest in politics, cranking up the 70’s music station and asking questions about his tour in Vietnam. My dad did not die in combat. However, he died due to a combat-related medical issue. I miss him. I wish he were here on my tough days when I feel alone and the bipolar is overwhelming me. I know he would not mind me leaning on him for strength. Dad always had great advice.
I will see him real soon in Heaven which takes the sting out of the missing part of his absence in my life. That makes me smile.
Scripture references to know you are saved
