My name is Alistair McHarg and my mental health humor blog, “Funny In The Head”, is a weekly feature here at HealthyPlace. The goal is to help us all discover and rediscover the fundamental absurdities and humor in the challenges we face and overcome. I believe seeing the humor in our trials is a key ingredient of recovery and health.
I have been battling Manic Depression (Bipolar Disorder) and substance abuse issues for 40+ years and have logged many an hour in mental hospitals and police stations. Since I’m convinced that rigorous honesty is the secret to lasting mental health, I write exclusively from personal experience.
Humor writing has been a lifelong passion. My bipolar memoir, Invisible Driving, is an irreverent, unprecedented view inside this bizarre, misunderstood world. I have also written two satirical novels, Moonlit Tours and Washed Up. My website www.alistairmcharg.com is updated daily, you can also find me on Facebook. For cattywhumpus wit and wisdom, follow my alter ego, @TazMopula, on Twitter.
