Dyane Harwood and Her Muse Lucy
Happy Birthday to My Dear Friend Dyane Harwood and Her Muse Lucy

This weekend I’m going up to the San Francisco Bay Area so that Rebecca Gitenstein can interview me at The Wright Institute for her doctoral study on mothers with bipolar disorder. What do you know – I’m a mother and I have bipolar disorder. PLUS – The Wright Institute is in Berkeley. Seeing Rebecca in person gives me a great excuse to go visit friends up there. I’m actually a native San Franciscan. My parents met, married and made me in San Francisco. I went to UC Berkeley for my bachelors in legal studies and to New College of California in San Francisco for my masters in psychology. Not only will I be able to connect with old friends who live in the Bay Area, but… drum roll, please… I get to meet DYANE HARWOOD of Birth of a New Brain – Healing from Postpartum Bipolar Disorder!!! I absolutely ADORE DYANE!!! I CANNOT WAIT to meet her IN PERSON!!! (I’m telling you there are not enough exclamation points and capital letters to express how excited I am.)

  1. Unfortunately, it has not. I got gastroenteritis from my son and have to stay home sick.

  2. […] am SO disappointed. Woke up this morning with gastroenteritis. Not able to go on my trip to the San Franciscod Bay Area. Not able to be interviewed for Rebecca Gitenstein’s study on mothers with bipolar disorder. […]

  3. Kitt – Hope everything goes just the way you hope.

  4. Exciting travel that will be, Kitt! Wishing you a fruitful trip and a wonderful reunion 🙂

  5. In my country, we say “Envy and it’s siser J (for jealousy) at work” that’s all I can honestly say at this moment – with regards to you meeting Lady oh, and not for the interview. Sure for that I wish you well 🙂

  6. Wow…get to meet another blogger! Very cool…especially since it is both you and Dyane!

  7. Ooh, I hadn’t thought about that… I just figured it was a great excuse to get away and chat with a clinician. I was trained as a psychotherapist, so it should be fun.

  8. Thank you, e! No doubt we will both post about it, including photos and maybe a video.

  9. You bet. I usually hate to have my photo taken, but we’ll have to, of course. Maybe even a silly video.
