My first Blog. My Journey being Bipolar

Okay so I have been diagnosed with Bipolar disorder. So What Now? What do I do now that I now I am not just crazy, and there is a real illness that has caused me to be “insane” over the years. I was told by my PDOC that it would be a good idea if I kept a journal to chart my moods,  my ups, and my downs. I thought well why don’t I just Blog about it. maybe someone who can relate to my journey will see my blog and it just might help them.

 Okay so here is a little info on myself that might help you all get to know me and help with relating with me.

I am a mom of 3 kids. Josh 16, Nick 13 and Ashley 9.

I have been married for 14 years to the most wonderful man in the world. I have a tendency to bitch and complain about him but let me tell you this; My whole life revolves around him. If he god forbid something ever happened to him I would cease to exist. I would not know how to exist without him in my life. He is truly the love of my life no matter how much I try to act like he isn’t. He is the best thing that ever happened to me.

My oldest son Josh is currently in his 2nd group home. He is Bipolar as well. He has been in and out of trouble since he was 10. He and I are like oil and water. He is my first born and I would give my own life for him. 

Well there is a rundown of the basics about me. In this blog I plan on blogging about my day to day struggle to just be normal, my ups, my downs, my meds, basically my life.

I started taking Depakote 250mg twice a day on Monday March 1,2010. I am still having a hard tie sleeping at night. When I lay down to sleep my mind races,  I swear I think about 100 things a minute. I hope to soon find something to help me sleep a little better. I had labwork done on Monday March 8th so I hope to hear from the doctor soon to get something to help me sleep.
