My newest post is up at the Huffington Post, about bipolar and my marriage.

I loved this post on Mommas Gone City on her struggles with discipline with her young son. I don't necessarily agree with everything she says, but I love the thought, care and heart she is putting into helping her son, and the honesty and clarity of her writing.

Solving Kids Cancer seems to be a great website for raising money to fight against children's cancers.

I came across three personal writings on health care, all fascinating and both important to read. Calvin's Story is the recounting of a mother of a severely disabled son, and Leslie's story Who Are The Uninsured? is about a family unable to afford health care for life threatening disease. A Possibly Fatal Mistake, in NYT, is the story of one man's decision that will most likely cost him his life. 

I had been following Tucker's story. He was 18 and had leukemia, and he died.  Play It Sweet In Heaven, written by a family friend,  is one of the most heart rending, raw and touching writings I've ever been privledged to read online. You can too.
