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.

Glenn Close is Honored for her Fight Against Mental Illness Stigma
Glenn Close appeared on the Today show after being honored for her work in fighting the stigma associated with mental illness. As she shared, 1 in 4 people are affected by mental illness. Her own sister has Bipolar Disorder and her nephew has Shizoaffective Disorder, so she too has personally dealt with it. Way to go Glenn Close, thanks for making a difference for our families!
