A Big Thank You!
Today, we reached 800+ Facebook followers on our My Bipolar Mind page! That is amazing to me. I never even anticipated having more than one single follower when I first created this blog a few years ago.
So, I would really like to say thank you to everyone who has followed my blog and Facebook page. It really does mean the world to me.
As much as I tell everyone that I don’t want them to feel alone during their mental health or addiction struggles, you all have also helped me feel like I am not alone as well.
The first time someone told me how much I had helped them because of my blog, it felt amazing! And then a second person said how much I helped them, then a third, and it didn’t end there.
Each and every time someone mentions anything regarding feeling like I have helped them I get butterflies in my tummy. Helping people is the reason I started the blog, which then led to the FB page, which also led to the My Bipolar Mind Facebook support group, which finally ultimately led to my book.
On top of hitting 800 Facebook followers, the support group I created hit 10k members the other day! That is astonishing!
I created the group as a way for people with mental health disorders and/or addiction issues to connect and interact so that they could help one another and find support. So that they would know that they aren’t alone in their struggles. I also created it for people who have loved ones who deal with these issues as well.
I didn’t think the group would take off the way that it did and there are some really amazing people there. Especially the My Bipolar Mind group admins! Without their outstanding dedication and help, I wouldn’t be able to run the group and probably would have shut it down by now.
So here is a majorly huge shout out to the MBM group admins; Jodie, Nicole, Dawn, Amanda, Jess, Deborah, Jazmine, and Ann! You ladies are amazing!
