Ron Owens

My name is Ron Owens. I am 43 years old and I have been living with my wife Beka and her Bipolar Disorder for 13 years. We have an 8 year old son. 

In 2010, I was diagnosed with Generalized Anxiety Disorder after experiencing a few months of uncontrollable panic attacks. Since then I’ve been working on being more mindful and accepting that there are things I can’t control. 

My favorite quote is “I believe we have two lives, the life we learn with and the life we live with after that.” – From the movie, The Natural. I think I like it because it reminds me that we always have a chance to learn from our mistakes and apply them to our life going forward.  

I started blogging in the hopes that my experiences in dealing with bipolar disorder in my marriage can help provide support to others in similar situations. 

I have a BA in Journalism with a minor in English.n
