About Me

Bio

I am a 33-year old wife and mother of two young children. Over six years ago I suffered my first manic episode and several months and many doctor’s appointments later was finally diagnosed Bipolar I.

I’ve had four hospitalizations within five years – two before any diagnosis was reached, and two more because I was trying to protect my newborn son (postpartum psychosis) and my unborn daughter – and all were because I was unmedicated at the time.

I have learned so much from my journey thus far and hope that by sharing my experiences I can help other women who may be wondering if they’ll ever be able to make their dreams of a family a reality. You can – I am living proof that it is possible. I take medication and have regular appointments with my psychiatrist and therapist. My incredible support system helps me to live fully, and I attribute a great deal of my success to their encouragement over the years.
