Finding Hope: A Guest Post in Honor of World Bipolar Day

In honor of World Bipolar Day, I’m sharing a post written by my younger sister, Tiffany, who has a diagnosis of schizoaffective disorder, bipolar type. Tiffany has shared a monthly guest post on my blog since February 2015. The purpose of these posts is to raise awareness of what it’s like to live with mental illness. I’m also hoping the posts…

    Tiff… what a great post. Loved it. Even those of us who don’t suffer from mental illness have days of highs and lows. There are days I don’t connect the dots so to speak. I just ask God to help me thru the day and think of those less fortunate that maybe I could give a call to or drop a line (even on FB) to brighten their day and it gives me “purpose” and Hope! My boys are my happiness even tho they get bogged down with issues at least they know that Mom has “unconditional love” and will always be there if even just to listen.
    Just be YOU. You are a very special and talented individual. You have many talents to share whether it be a call, a visit or just a “smile”. That smile to even a strange may be the “hope” that they need to make it thru another day.
    Keep up the great progress and squeeze those little ones tight as they grow up much too soon.
    Hugs & Prayers <3 MaryReplyCancel

I Am Working

I have to be honest. I’ve been struggling with something significant these past three months. Today, I would like to share that struggle. Some of you might relate. Recent life circumstances have caused me to think HARD about the definition of WORK. What is WORK? I “stopped working” at the end of December 2014 to stay home…

Feeling All the Feelings (A Prescription for the Anesthetized Life)

I started a re-entry post, got all the way to 384 words and decided it wasn’t right. So here goes. My second try. My second shot. My best attempt to tell you where I’ve been these past two weeks. No need to beat around the bush. I need to write something bold, something brave, something public…
