Finally coming off my Patty Duke high … but it made me think a bit. This was kinda a huge deal for me. I’d always wanted to meet her. Her, and Carrie Fisher. (Well, and Sylvia Plath … but I’m gonna have to wait till I get to heaven for that one!)
But Patty Duke and Carrie Fisher are the two bipolar celebrities that I think really started something for all other celebrities not to mention for bringing awareness about Bipolar Disorder. I mean maybe there were others that I don’t remember learning about. But those were the two names I always associated with Famous People who Have Bipolar.
Of course NOW there’s a TON of celebrities coming out of the Bipolar Closet. So today … my question for you is …
If you could meet ANY celebrity who suffers from Mental Illness, who would you choose?
