I've Been Honored by ShareCare in the Top 10 for Helping People With Depression

By December 17, 2011

Follow me on:

ShareCare Top 10 Depression InfluencersShareCare has chosen the Top 10 Online Influencers making a difference in the world of depression, and I'm on their list. Since 1998 I've been working to help people who have bipolar disorder, including, of course, those who must cope with bipolar depression. I'm greatly honored to be recognized by ShareCare!

I'm also proud to be associated with the others on ShareCare's list, which includes Nancy Schimelpfenig of About.com's Depression website - congratulations, Nancy! - along with eight other bloggers and writers who all work as mental health advocates. ShareCare describes us as those who "who help millions of people cope with their depression every month."

Thank you to all my readers who have been listening, asking questions and sharing the answers this year. I owe this award to you.

Marcia, as someone else commented “Richly deserved”, says it well. I look forward to the email each week and read it. Living with BP is very isolating so it is good to get that email each week to remind me that I am not alone in this deal. Take care and best wishes! –Sharon
