Extremely eHealthy

You give me hope. My son is bipolar and very artistic. He draws and paints with such detail and feeling. He is only 9 years old but some of his work is so beautiful that we have it framed and hanging in our living room.
I love your work. Keep it up.

Great work Leonardy! You are an amazing artist! I wrote a book that was published and sells pretty well. I try to live my life not thinking about having BP, but rather being creative. I think a lot of the "mad scientist" types actually have/had BP but we didn't have a word for it. I know I have it but prefer to think of being "neurologically diverse".
