Is it my bipolar mind playing tricks on me or are there now more awareness days than unawareness days? What about an Unawareness Awareness Day? Has anybody had the awareness or unawareness to think of that? If there is an Unawareness Awareness Day, I am unaware of it.

NoooooooOOOOOOO! I missed Bipolar Awareness Day March 30! But I wish you all a happy Bipolar Unawareness Day today. To mark the unoccasion, I did some digging and found my elusive, best ever screenshot of Bipolar Express in Dropbox. You don’t get much more educaitonal than THIS!

Sadly, it was swiftly amended by somebody who doesn’t enjoy an amusing typo quite as much as I do. I guess I just didn’t see the point of subscribing after that…

Of course EVERY day is Bipolar Awareness Day if you have bipolar or care for somebody who does. And you shouldn’t have to face it alone!

Bipolar Hong Kong 躁鬱香港 started out as my humble blog in a some might say losing battle to try and keep myself sane. Over the past 7 years it has evolved into a leaderless movement of likeminded souls searching for enlightenment, empowerment and a platform to connect.

The group offers free, monthly support groups in Central and (since 2020) on Zoom for Hongkongers affected by bipolar disorder, their friends and families, including peer mentoring, the odd socially distanced social, and access to creative opportunities via Mental ideas. If you’re looking for peer support, a chance to vent and share ideas, join us!

Everybody welcome!

Thanks to South China Morning Post journo Anthea Rowan for featuring me in her article exploring the stormy creative highs and lows of bipolar disorder in Monday’s SCMP!

Thanks to SCMP photographer Antony Dickson for an hilarious impromptu photoshoot on my roof, where for no particular reason (other than the weather was nice) we decided to recreate classic scenes from two of my favorite movies with my new poo Mojo Hobo Kaye!

Can’t believe I’m writing this… RIP Reuben M Tuck! Truly one of the funniest, whip smart, joyous, down to earth (while never quite of this earth) and loveliest people on the planet. The undisputed star of my 2015 Bipolar Express doc and someone I had known since I was 18 (and he led me astray – or it might have been the other way round). He died peacefully at home in Thailand but was only 58. Absolutely heartbroken for his wife Normandy, his family and all those who loved him. FU 2020. RIP Rueb❤️ XX

You can hear Reuben talking about his bipolar with his trademark charisma, candor, humor and wisdom here:

He was an absolute gift of a guest and it was down to him that the doc did so well, picking up an award from RTHK in 2016 and being Highly Commended by the Association for International Broadcasting in 2015.

Blurred Lives: Me, Bill Sheehan & Reuben M

One type of podcast guest that’s proved easy to secure in the midst of the COVID 19 pandemic is grounded airline cabin crew. Bipolar is a condition that’s often been associated with mad creative geniuses, like Van Gough, Beethoven, Mozart, Theresa May and Carrie Lam. But what if you work as a first class bathroom assistant for a living and don’t have a creative bone in your body? The Agitated Air Stewardess is a harrowing tale of triumph in the face of absurdity. Florence Wong ROCKS!!!

The Mental Ideas Podcast is back on RTHK Radio 3 this Thursday (April 23) @ 2.30 HKT, where I’m talking psychopaths in The Psychopathic Actor with French actor Philippe Joly who isn’t one (allegedly). Don’t miss it!!!
