Frank Sinatra - Test Your Christmas Knowledge

Okay Test Your Christmas Knowledge-,0,7827105,post.triviaquiz
Happy Birthday Ole Blue Eyes - Wikipedia

Throughout his life, Sinatra had mood swings and bouts of depression, symptoms of bipolar disorder, formerly known as manic depression. He himself acknowledged this fact, telling an interviewer in the 1950s: "Being an 18-karat manic-depressive, and having lived a life of violent emotional contradictions, I have an over-acute capacity for sadness as well as emotion.". In her memoirs My Father's Daughter, his daughter Tina wrote about the "eighteen-karat" remark: "As flippant as Dad could be about his mental state, I believe that a Zoloft a day might have kept his demons away. But that kind of medicine was decades off."

Interesting that a lot of the stars I'm writing about had bipolar disorders.

I've got to run over there and check out that quiz. I LOVE taking those kind of things, but I've got a REALLY SLOW old computer (Takes 1/2 hour to upload a 2 min. vid on YouTube... frustrating!) We had a huge storm all day long here with thunder shaking the house, buckets of rain and heavy winds, so I couldn't get on the computer all day and now I'm behind on all the reading I was going to do... :(

Anyway, I know about bipolar as I've got a son, a daughter, and had a DIL with that problem/s. It's a hard thing to live with and a lot of people don't want to or won't stay on their meds, or don't have the medical insurance to be able to afford the meds. (But I'm STILL not for this government run medical stuff...) As you can see, I tend to get a bit chatty myself! :)
