This is me

The Bipolar Mama

I started blogging when I quit my job and became a stay-at-home mom. It started as a way to keep my sanity and has progressed into something more. Diagnosed with bipolar disorder at 16, I have faced all kinds of stigma in my life. My goal is to one day help bring down that stigma.

When I am not trying to bring down the stigma, I am raising two very energetic boys and a small flock of chickens. However on Tuesdays and Thursdays, you can find me stepping on the track as Jersey TurnSpike. I love nothing more that playing for the Northern Allegheny Roller Derby league.

Kocher aka Hubby aka Love of my life

This man is my rock. He is the one who keeps me from completely falling apart. Being bipolar (not formally diagnosed), he understands what I go through inside of my head. We keep each other grounded and work as a team to raise our sweet boys.

Daniel aka Big D

He is my little tornado. He is always vibrant and full of life. He is also stubborn as a mule. He has a strong love for animals and his brother (most days). He likes four-wheelers, tractors, and anything with a motor. His favorite shows are Wallykazam, Paw Patrol and Mighty Machines.


Dylan aka Pickle

This is my little hippie baby. He is always smiling and loves everyone. He is my go-with-the-flow baby. He loves his family and just life in general. He loves animals, music and being with his mama.

  2. Great to you smiling 🙂 Too often people with health matters seem to be depressed all the time.. It does no good to be like that… We should all smile more. Keep smiling.. Keep smiling 🙂
