Hello! I am the mommy behind Mommy Needs Meds. And yes, I NEED meds. Not Benadryl, not Tylenol, or any of those other medicine cabinet staples. I need the good stuff that you can only get after spending a few hours in an uncomfortable chair at the psychiatrists office. I have been diagnosed with PTSD and Bipolar – Type I. If you found this blog, chances are that you suffer from the same (or similar) diagnoses.
I am the mother to two girls, ages 6 and 4. I work full-time for a local college, and I am currently enrolled part-time in an MBA program. Needless to say, I am a pretty busy person. But, I happen to have the best support system at home. I have a husband who can cook AND clean (and look damn good while doing them). He makes my hectic lifestyle possible, and he is the one who encouraged me to start blogging my experiences. I honestly don’t know where I’d be without him.
My goal for this blog is to provide you with a view at my life, my successes, my failures, and my journey to better mental health as a mother. But most of all, I want you to know that YOU ARE NOT ALONE. You don’t have to suffer in silence. We exist, I exist. And I am here to build a system of support that you can reach out to.
In the meantime, feel free to follow me on social media, and join my mailing list for updates and new content! I am SO excited to get my hands dirty and start pumping this page full of my thoughts! On the plus side, I’ve been told I have an amazing sense of humor, so at least give me a chance until that has a chance to shine through 😉
