About Me

I am a wife, a mom and mentally ill.  While I am multi-faceted, I do define myself in that way and in that order.  They are the three attributes I most identify with.  They are intertwined indefinitely.  When my mental illness caused me to neglect my husband, my children were deeply affected. I wouldn’t have called myself mentally ill until this past year, when my illness almost cost me all of my relationships. Now I embrace it, so that I can heal, grow, repair my relationships and improve the quality of my life. I’m not ashamed or embarrassed…my trials and tribulations have taught me much and I lived in denial for too long…and it cost me too much.

I started this blog to chronicle my journey to recovery.  Recovery from pain and despair; recovery from hopelessness; recovery from the rage and depression of Bipolar disorder; and the recovery of self-pride.  I haven’t even begun to end this journey…I doubt I ever will.  Writing my story is cathartic in and of itself. I do hope my story resonates with at least one person…who will feel less alone on their journey.
