Thanks to Amber of Medicated Mommy for this beautiful post about “Birth of a New Brain”!

It’s time for all of us with mood disorders to achieve our goals, whether it’s getting out of bed at 6:00 a.m., taking on a volunteer job, or being present with our family. It’s time to surround ourselves with people who love us.

A few weeks ago I was contacted by Dyane Harwood, author of Birth of a New Brain. She offered me a free copy of her book in exchange for a review on my blog. I was touched, especially considering my blog is brand new. I agreed because I knew that her story would be a perfect fit here. Dyane’s book is about her experience with Post Partum Bipolar Disorder. It also chronicles her struggle with chronic depression.

Dyane’s story reached into my soul and connected to me in a way I didn’t think was possible. I didn’t think I would enjoy this book, as…

  1. Thank you for checking out my blog! I just started and am debating on starting to make this a regular thing. I am a teacher and a school counselor who has been divorced after my “break” 10 years ago.
    What do you think? I know I have a lot of honest insight into the illness as well as mental illness in general. I like reading your blogs. I haven’t bit the bullet and started to pay yet. I do find it therapeutic.

  2. Congratulations, Dyane, on another stellar review! I’m so proud of you for putting yourself out there so consistently. I only wish I will be able to do the same! We miss you in the blogosphere, and hope that you are doing well and can come back soon.

    • Thank you, sweet Cass! It’s soooooooo *hard* to put myself/my book (are they separate, LOL!!!!) out there. Holy $*%*&*&^. I’ve been ignored and snubbed and ghosted by other moms who have bipolar disorder who have HUGE folllowings. I simply asked them to share my tweet about my free book offer & they blew me off. I don’t get it. If I had 17,000 followers and I was a mommy blogger w/bipolar, I sure as hell would want to share a free resource that wasn’t only good for being a doorstopper, you know? 😜 Ahhh, can you tell I’m about to get my period? Anyway, Amber’s review is really tugging at my heartstrings. I actually teared up reading it – it moved me so much.

      I promise you that you will be able to promote “Committed” when the time comes. And I will help you!!!!!! I mean it.

      I’m off to score some vegan chocolate! Thanks for writing, my dear. Your supportive, insightful comments always make me happy, Cass. XOXOXOXOX
