Patting Myself on the Back :-)

Yes, I am!

~ I started my blog, this bipolar1blog, less than two years ago, on Ā August 3rd, 2014.

~ And it has been chosen as one of the best bipolar blogs by Healthline.com in 2015.

~ It has beenĀ chosen as one of the best bipolar blogs by Healthline.com in 2016.

~ After sending in one of my poems, I was invited to blog for HuffPost by Ariana Huffington herself! (http://www.huffingtonpost.com/samina-raza/) I have 13 posts on HuffPost now!

~ And now after Muffy Walker, the founder of International Bipolar Foundation (ibpf.org) asked me to blog for them, my first post appeared there today! All my posts on ibpf will be listed here:Ā http://ibpf.org/tags/samina-raza

Oh, we lament, and cry, and feel anxious and hopeless because of our illnessesĀ enough.

BUT today, I’m leaving that all behind and like my friend Dyane said, I’m simply going to soak it all in!smiley

I am very proud of myself, that what I created is good. IĀ write with confidence, after all it is something with which I am very familiar. I never second guess myself here, on bipolar1blog. I am proud that the “world” even seems to appreciate what I am doing here!Ā smiley

I have gotten a few comments to the effect of “I was having suicidal thoughts, but after reading what you wrote, I changed my mind” !!! Now that is ENORMOUS! That is the most gratifying thing ever, that you may actually have helped save someone’s life!

Also, I’ve had a few comments that said they absolutely loved my blog, one to the effect of “You have one of the best mental health blogs Iā€™ve seen, period.” !! Pretty amazing, I am proud and humbled and happy that my blog is making a difference, and it is appreciated!

I’m just going to sit here for a while and just luxuriate, bask, glory in, delight in, revel in (yes I looked at thesaurus.comsmiley) and then I’m going to do my happy Snoopy danceĀ snoopy

Thank you dear readers, for reading, commenting, and offering support and love when I needed it, and allowing me to do the same for you.

With Love and Peace,

Samina.

  1. Hello Biplar1Blog. I am so impressed with what you have done. Congratulations!!!! I am dreaming that my blog and writing will be well liked as well. I have just started mine and let me tell you I am not very tech savvy at all, so it took me a very long time to even get it up and running to the point that it is at now….. the very beginning basics of a blog.
    I had to start over a few times, but I think I have the very basics now so that I can start writing more. I can’t wait until I will be able to just catch up and start being able to write after I finish writing and posting my beginning introduction drafts etc. I feel like I should start with those first anyway. I have just started so I do not have any followers yet. When you get a chance will you look at mine and see what you think???? My site is….. myloudbipolarwhispers.com….. thank you. I will take any advice and comments you have to time to share. Thank you so much and have a happy and blessed day. Congratulations again on your huge huge huge accomplishments. You should be so proud of yourself!!!! Hugs, Sue
