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.

I just got back from Stanford where I attended the 9th annual Mood Disorders Dialogue Day. One of the highlights was listening to Dr. Kiki Chang, who’s Chief of the Pediatric Bipolar Disorder Clinic at Stanford University and as always, being able to visit with other parents, even Bug’s Mom and Dad who I originally met at this conference a few years back. I look forward to sharing the info I collected, but right now I’m stepping away from my computer for the week to enjoy my family. Check back the following week for the latest research on mood disorders in children, I’m sure you’ll find it as interesting as I did!
