This blog is about my life as a mom, raising a son with a mood disorder and autism. 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. If you’re new to this blog, check out my list of “Important Posts” in the right column and feel free to share your story with me. This blog shouldn’t be used for medical advice.

Sadie's Story: A bipolar child
One of my regular followers who I was blessed to meet in person a few years ago wrote a touching, yet honest article about raising her daughter who was diagnosed with early onset bipolar disorder. As a talented writer, she’s able to eloquently put into words an experience we’re all very familiar with. As an added bonus, a video was also made with her daughter (5th grade) who shares her experience in living with this challenging mental illness. I am so proud of this mama bear and her beautiful daughter to step out and share their experience so that others don’t have to face this alone. Please, click the link below to read their entire story and maybe share Sadie’s video with your kids—my son enjoyed it and could relate to it as well.
