Catherine Zeta-Jones’ bipolar made marriage stronger

Michael Douglas & Catherine Zeta-Jones Catherine Zeta-Jones revealed she got to know herself and her husband Michael Douglas - with whom she shares daughter Carys, nine, and son Dylan, 12 - much better since she was went public with her diagnosis of bipolar disorder last year. The 43-year-old told InStyle magazine: "It's been an intense time, in good ways and bad. You find out who you really are and who you're married to. You find things inside yourself you never imagined were there." Catherine also opened up about how she tries to keep herself healthy by completely avoiding the Internet. She said: "You can't escape what people say, and if you're human it can be painful. The smartest thing I did was to stop going online. I'm the sort of person who will just look for the negative. My husband Michael can't really understand it, but that is the way I am. With my bipolar thing, that's poison. So I just stopped. Cold turkey. And it's so liberating." The actress is hoping to remove the stigma attached to mental illness by going public with her diagnosis. She said: "I'm not the kind of person who likes to shout out my personal issues from the rooftops, but with my bipolar becoming public, I hope fellow suffers will know it is completely controllable. I hope I can help remove any stigma attached to it, and that those who didn't have it under control will seek help with all that is available to treat it."

    I didn’t know she was bi-polar. Must be tough to live with.

    few technical issues using this website, as I experienced to reload
    the web site many times previous

    to I could get it to load correctly. I had been wondering
    if your web host is OK? Not that

    I’m complaining, but slow loading instances times will often affect your

    placement in google and can damage your high quality score if advertising and

    marketing with Adwords. Anyway Im adding this RSS to my e-mail and could look out for a lot more of your respective fascinating content. Ensure that you update
