Seven famous writers who had mental illness

I found this list on PschCentral this morning. From the article: “In a recent study, professional writers were found to be 121% more likely to suffer from bipolar disorder than the general population.  Moreover, the same study found that authors had a “statistically significant increase” in anxiety disorders—38% to be exact.”

All I can say is, I guess I’m in the right profession!
