Heath Ledger and Bipolar Disorder

In yet another shameless effort to boost my blog stats, here’s a comment on Trouble With Spikol’s recent post on the possibility that Heath Ledger had bipolar disorder.  According to a new biography, Heath’s uncle Hadyn has bipoloar disorder and suggests that the young star may have been as well.  Spikol says she hates these speculations, but I think that Hadyn makes a good point when he says that the diagnosis is nothing to be ashamed of. He told the author of the biography,  “I don’t mind people knowing I have bipolar disorder, and it’s a shame that it took this long to be diagnosed.”   You got it.  As the blogger at Mental Health Humor writes, there’s much we can learn from this example.
