Bi-polar disorder

I had a mixed reaction to the news this morning that Catherine Zeta Jones has been diagnosed and treated successfully for bi-polar disorder.

Obviously extremely sorry for her that she has been feeling extremely depressed.

Also hopeful that she will manage her condition well since she sought professional help and is being treated.

But mainly pleased that she took the brave step to share her diagnosis with the world; raising the awareness of these oh so common mental illnesses and therefore helping to remove the stigma that can make them all the more difficult to live with.

My prayers are with Catherine and all bi-polar sufferers.
