From Your No. 1 Health Advocate

It's all about balance! (Right — as I pen this note to you, I'm well beyond a solid day's work.)*

Recognizing the signs of life's stresses takes strength and courage. As one of our WebMD medical editors told me when I inquired about this issue's story on bipolar disorder, "You feel so good when you are up, you cannot imagine seeking treatment. And yet when you are down and out, you cannot summon the strength to find a physician to help you." How do those with this condition cope? Find out here.

Our cover story on Anderson Cooper illuminates more ways to cope. Cooper — CNN news anchor, host of Anderson Cooper 360ยบ, and son of heiress and designer Gloria Vanderbilt — has witnessed tragedy both on the job and in his own life (losing his father at an early age and, later, a brother to suicide). His heartfelt on-camera delivery during the Hurricane Katrina aftermath in New Orleans showed us how intense life experiences can change us in ways we cannot imagine beforehand. Read his story.

Finally, a warm thank you to those WebMD the "Magaziners" who read about my mother's breast cancer and wished her well. I am happy to report that after surgery, chemotherapy, radiation, and ongoing preventive chemo, she is doing well. We found both the sorrow and the joy in her losing her hair (a plus: no leg shaving; a minus: the loss of those enviable golden locks); the challenge and humor of going about one's life while being treated for cancer (a plus: steroid-induced spring-cleaning marathons; a minus: the daily drive to the oncology center); and the biggest boon of all: being able to hear her newfound attentiveness — when she tells me she loves me and when she plays her piano, organ, and harpsichord music.

Finding health and wellness in our lives, striking a balance between obligation and enjoyment, persevering through adversity — this is the tapestry of living. We hope that your journey this summer finds you and your family in good health. Always know that we at WebMD the Magazine and are rooting that your journey feels easier when it's rough going, and even more joy-filled when it's smooth.

Yours in well-being,
