Two Angels and a Black Dog

The journey of a single mum with bipolar

About

Depression entered my life for the first time in high school and has lingered to a greater or lesser extent all my life. When I was in my late 20s I experienced psychosis for the first time but I was only recently diagnosed with bipolar.

My relationship with my daughter’s father ended when she was weeks old. I couldn’t fathom how I could cope being a single parent after the numerous hospitalisations I’d had over a decade or so.

Our little family includes my daughter, Gracie, the delight of my life, my fur-baby Blackie, who has visited me while I’ve been in hospital, and my Mum, Flo, who provides a strong presence and supports me throughout my struggles with my mental illness and single parenthood.

This blog is my journey as I seek to refashion a life for myself and try to make sense of the past. I’ll share my experiences and discoveries and I hope that I will meet you along the way and learn from you as well.
