What is this blog about? In the tradition of Seinfeld, it’s really not about anything. It’s a reflection of the mental and emotional states that challenge someone dealing with addiction and bipolar. To pull that off I write about whatever comes up in my daily life. I don’t do a lot of proofing or rewriting. My one rule is to never delete anything, or edit it out of existence, because it’s in some way distasteful. I want this work to be an accurate representation of what I go through, be it good, bad, or ugly.

Recently I re-read some of my early posts. It’s obvious that I”ve been through a wide range of emotional states and moods in the five plus months since I started this project. If you are intimate with someone you suspect is an addict or otherwise mentally ill reading what I go through might help you determine if your friend or loved one is so afflicted. If they are, it’s not necessarily the end of the world.

I take replying to comments by spells. If you really want to ask or tell me something the best way to make sure I get the message is to email me at the address near the bottom of the sidebar to the right. I’ll answer you, and usually in less that 24 hours. I’m not an expert at anything, save perhaps what not to do. My mistakes may save someone some steps. That is my hope.

If your new to blogging, and are interested in mental health blogs, check out my Blogger Buds page. Most of the sites listed are at least on the fringes of the mental health blogging community. Most of the bloggers listed are very nice, and even the ones that aren’t will correspond with you if you so desire. Just start hanging out at their places. Leave comments and pretty soon you’ll have a host of cyber-friends.

I’m glad you stopped by and hope you find Cracked Head Blog useful. Again, if I can be of service, don’t hesitate to email me.

Mobile, Al.

    Thanks for leaving your blog open while you’re taking your leave of absence. I’ve always felt it was important for each of us to leave a trail for others to follow… or for us to come back to if we get a little lost. Stay strong and keep walking.

If you're interested in reading a fairly detailed account of addiction and depression, Cracked Head Memoirs might be for you. It basically tells how it was and what happened. Writing it helped me go from active addiction to recovery yet again.

Cool blog posts I've discovered. It's a sort of greatest hits collection.
