This 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. 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.

Something to Sing About
Check out this amazing girl, Shelby Tweten, who appeared on American Idol this 2012 season. She shared how singing has helped her through her bipolar disorder, especially when hypomanic, her mom would help her by having them sing together. Way to go Shelby, thank you for being brave in sharing your challenges and encouraging so many other young kids who need something to sing about. See you in Hollywood!!!
