I am a Doer

I am a doer. I don’t like to sit around and watch things get done. I like to jump in with both feet and try my hardest to help out. This gets me in trouble sometimes as I end up with too much on my plate, but it’s just the way I am.

Three years ago when I was diagnosed with Bipolar Disorder, the doer in me came out with full force. I began researching every topic I could find so I would be educated with enough information to help battle this illness I had. It took a long time for me to realize that I had, had Bipolar Disorder my entire life and I already knew how to cope with it.

The next thing I did was try to connect with other Bipolar Parents. I wanted to connect with them and see how they were coping. I thought if I could just find a group of Bipolar Parents we could help each other through our darkest times. Being a parent is hard work, being a parent with a mental illness is almost impossible. I wanted to give others a place to go for comfort, support and encouragement. But doing a Google search for anything related to parenting and having Bipolar Disorder came up empty. That’s when I started the website http://rebeccamoorestorms.com/ which is still going strong today. I also wrote a book called “Moorestorms A Guide For the Bipolar Mother” which will be published and released by Praeclarus Press soon.

But I wanted to do more, so I started a website called http://bipolparentingproject.com. It is here where there are many resources for the Bipolar Parent along with contributors who share their stories of what it’s like to be a Bipolar Parent and how they cope from day to day. My vision is to one day turn this small website into a non-profit organization where we can reach people within our community and people world-wide. It would be the first of it’s kind and I feel it is very important.

We talk about topics like postpartum depression, neonatal bipolar disorder, bipolar disorder, ptsd, just to name a few.

So I am doing and there are days I feel like I am not doing enough to help the Bipolar Parent but I do try and trying is all I can do!
