I’m a 41 year old Mama Bear married to my sweetheart for 21 years. We have 3 beautiful boys ages 12, 10 and 8. My oldest started showing signs of a mood disorder around 5 years ago. He was diagnosed with bipolar disorder. He’s currently taking Tenex, Trileptal, Lithium and Melatonin and is in therapy with our HMO. Recently our youngest was diagnosed with depression and anxiety.
My blog is about my life as a mom, raising a son with a mood disorder. This is a tough journey and I hope that my words may allow others living with this illness see that they’re not alone. I’m also using this blog as a tool to process my own feelings and let go of the pain that I carry inside.
