Rebecca Moore

 

I was diagnosed with bipolar disorder when I was 33 years old. Although I lived my entire life with mood swings, it was not until 3 years ago that I was diagnosed. Prior to that, I was diagnosed with Major Depressive Disorder, which made sense because I only sought help when I was depressed. Since my diagnosis, I made it my mission to reach out to others' who are coping with bipolar disorder and depression. I have ran my own blog for over 3 years, wrote "Moorestorms A Guide for the Bipolar Parent" and am doing advocacy work within my own community. In addition, I run a facebook page and my own personal blog. I am married to my high school sweetheart and we have 7 children together. We live in Northeastern Pennsylvania and have our entire lives. You can find my book at Moorestorms A Guide for the Bipolar Parent and you can find my facebook at Moorestorms

I loved your book "Moorestorms: A Guide for the Bipolar Parent". For less than the cost of a large mocha, I was able to read about the experiences of another parent with bipolar. I wrote the following five-star review about it on Amazon: "Ms. Moore's moving book "Moorestorms: A Guide For The Bipolar Parent" was a fast, moving read filled with tons of helpful information. Reading "Moorestorms" was like sitting down with a good friend to learn about what it's like to live with this illness, and how to live a better life in spite of its damage. As Moore is the parent of seven children, she has learned an enormous deal about how to be the best parent she can be. I wish I had this book a long time ago when my two kids were young, as it would have made me feel less alone with my struggles and it would have given me practical pointers as well. The author bares her soul throughout the book. She never condescends to the reader like some "bipolar experts" do in their tomes. I highly recommend it." I look forward to reading your blog here. As a fellow parent with young children, I have a special interest in what you have to say regarding being a mom with bipolar. Welcome!! best wishes from your fellow Intl. Bipolar Foundation blogger Dyane Harwood www.proudlybipolar.wordpress.com

Thank you Dyane for the warm welcome and for your wonderful review of my book :)
