When I was diagnosed with Bipolar II Disorder with episodes of ultra-rapid cycling in 2001, I found an answer for a lot of questions about why I was the way I was – and even more questions about what to do with that information. I hope my blog posts ignite hope and inspiration for readers – and writing them seems to be good therapy for me, too! 

I have undergraduate coursework in writing, nursing, art, psychology, design, dance, massage therapy and more, but my Bachelor’s degree (after many changes in major) is in Allied Health Management. I am working on a Masters in Management with a focus on Public Relations, and currently work full time as a Public Relations Specialist and part time as a massage therapist. At home, I have an amazing, understanding husband, a sensitive, caring little boy and a silly Yorkie that makes us all laugh. 

So far, life has had many ups and downs, and twists and turns, but all in all, I can’t complain. My bipolar life is rarely boring, but it doesn’t define me – I am just me, with bipolar disorder on the side.
