Happy Bipolar Disorder Awareness Day, I think

According to what I’ve read about the years past, I believe today (Thursday during Mental Illness Awareness Week/MIAW) is Bipolar Disorder Awareness Day. The people who created this holiday, NAMI, seem to have forgotten that they made this day up. I cannot find any information about this day on their web site. So, here are some other sites where you can go and find information about bipolar disorder. Bipolar disorder has been estimated to afflict more than 5 million Americans—about 1 out of every 45 adults. It’s too bad that no one is aware about the fact that there’s an awareness day for this illness.
