It’s pretty simple really. I’ve committed this blog towards mental health and by joining this project I’m publicly declaring it. If you don’t know me yet, I’m a thirty-one year old wife and mom of three darling boys. I was diagnosed in 2002 with Bipolar Disorder. It took me a couple of years, several medications, and two doctors to find a level of stability that I’ve managed most of the time since then. This blog is about me. It’s about bipolar disorder. There’s some unsolicited advice thrown in. I talk about God, and how great He is. I try to be upbeat and encouraging without being fake. Life is hard sometimes and sometimes you just gotta be real. And that’s what you can expect from me. (Maybe a little sarcasm too).
