My name is Mary Kidd. I was born in Kingston, Jamaica, on May 26, 1971. I moved to Houston with my family when I was five and currently reside here. I attended New York University where I earned my Bachelor of Arts in Psychology. After I graduated from NYU I lived in New York City for a couple years working at an advertising agency in media buying.
I have had many careers in fields ranging from advertising to Web design to mental health. I have also worked in education off and on and am currently working as a brain trainer for a company called LearningRx.
I was diagnosed with Bipolar Disorder Type 2 in 1999. Although the struggle has been unbearable at times, my life has stabilized in the last few years. I am currently a graduate school student at Sofia University and am studying counseling psychology. One day I would like to open a health and wellness center to provide all types of therapy to the mental health community.
I have a blog at www.zendengoddess.com where I write about my day-to-day life. I also started a blog recently at www.tamingthebipolarbeast.wordpress.com. My wish is that through sharing my experience, strength, and hope that others will not have to suffer from bipolar disorder the way I have.
