Doreen is a busy wife and mom. She likes doing whatever she’s in the “mood” for. She spends her time taking care of her family, doing hobbies, and being active with church. She has a bachelor’s degree in Elementary Education and enjoys substitute teaching.
Doreen was diagnosed with bipolar disorder in 2009, two years after experiencing a postpartum psychotic episode (after her second child). Since that time she has wanted to tell her story to promote awareness, understanding, and recovery. Earlier this year, she began writing her story on her blog at www.postpartumbipolar.wordpress.com and has found she enjoys recording her daily thoughts on life and on living with bipolar disorder.
