A Summer in the Cage

Hey guys! I would like to recommend the documentary, “A Summer in the Cage.”

If you have Bipolar, I’m interested to hear your take. If you don’t have it, you can learn a lot about a friend or family member, maybe even a co-worker.

This documentary is interesting in that it began as something else entirely, and the director met the subject in the course of it. They became friends and agreed the documentary should be about Sam and his Bipolar Disorder instead. Mania and depression are documented. Aggression and hospitalization. Really interesting stuff and depicted well, with brave honesty and truth.

If you do watch, or if you’ve already seen it, please let me know what you think.

I related to Sam in many ways. Additionally, I feel I would’ve learned a great deal about the disorder if I didn’t already have it.

Two MH Docs Worth Your Time

Two Educational and Inspired Documentaries ~ 5.27.18

“Being Bipolar” and “OC87” – two amazing and courageous documentaries about Bipolar, Anxiety and more that will educate and inspire. Try them. You won’t regret it. Perfect for people with the disorder(s), family, providers & patients, students and those seeking answers.

Addition: I was asked where one can see these documentaries. I believe I saw OC87 a year or so back on Netflix, but in searching now, I see them both on Amazon Streaming only. Being Bipolar can be rented or “watched with ads” and OC87 is available for free if you have Amazon Prime.

Hi, all. Just wanted to drop a quick line letting you know I’ve been busy with unexpected travel three times this month, two of which were deaths in the family.

I’m in a lot of physical pain, and I’ve been hit with bad news after bad news. This weekend, I’m going to try to catch up and share a bit about this last month, as well as some thoughts on two HBO documentaries, and another I found on Amazon Streaming when searching “Bipolar.”

The documentaries are Off Label, I Am Evidence and Being Bipolar.

Thought I might also share some tips that help me stay sane and productive, with as little anxiety as possible while traveling.

I write all of this as a preview for readers, but mostly as a reminder to myself. That leads me to ask you a question.

*When you are down, does your memory suffer? If so, why do you think that is?*
