  • Mental Health Warrior – Rebecca
    Meet my Mental Health Warrior for April. Yes I am soooo behind on all my mental health warriors post. Below is a little bit about Bekr. In addition I would like to add that I met Bekr a few years ago when I started my facebook page. She runs a page called The Misadventures of Bipolar Girl and Friends.

This was a very dark time for me. After […]

  • Motherhood and Mental Illness
      For Mental Health Awareness Month, I want to share my experience with being a mom and having a mental illness. Being a mom is a tough job on its own and it can be overwhelming.
