The illnesses I treat don't interfere with people's ability to understand their own problem. Many of my patients want to know all that I can teach them -- and more.
My local primary care colleagues are a fantastic group of doctors. Many of them have become very interested in the mood and anxiety disorders I treat, and call up asking for help or information.
Finally I thought: "hey, if I just wrote a lot of this stuff down and posted it on a website, my patients and my primary care colleagues could just go look anytime they wanted; and I can put up new information as soon as it becomes available!"
So my hospital website folks helped me get a site launched (Thanks, Julie and Heather), and now it has grown to include all sorts of different essays, diagrams, and links I wanted my patients or my colleagues to have.
My long-term goal is to provide quality education on topics where information on the Internet is scattered or non-existent, as it was in the case of "bipolar II". Welcome. I hope you find something useful.
