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.

Say it Forward
Today I participated in the Say it Forward campaign that was created by the International Bipolar Foundation to help put an end to the stigma associated with mental illness. Their goal is to reach 10,000 people this year. It’s an easy form, just click the link below, add a short personal message, add the emails you want to send it to and click send! What’s sent is a letter explaining the campaign and a list of myths and truths regarding mental illness. Stigma hurts because it often prevents people from getting the medical help they need. All that’s needed is a little education and you can change the way people think. Please help by being a part of this change by clicking on the link below, it may save a life!
