Furious Seasons writes a very interesting blog. He is an award winning journalist who was diagnosed with Bipolar Disorder and stopped taking his medication a year ago (although he doesn’t advocate the same for others with Bipolar Disorder). F.S is very smart and articulates his views eloquently. For me, the strength of his blog comes across when he discusses what the illness means to him and also when he examines research papers very closely!. F.S is cautiously sceptical about certain psychiatric diagnoses and some of the headlines in his articles can be provocative. F.S shows courage in broaching subjects where he runs against the weight of the establishment or large organisations, but does so in an open-minded manner rather than being a polarised critic of the medical model. This flexibility means that F.S cannot easily be pigeon-holed in his views and I think relates to him being an intelligent and independent thinker as well as the values he identifies with. Here are some of the highlights for me
