I am 31 years old. I was diagnosed with Bipolar and Schizophrenia disorder when I was around 11 years old. I have been through so much in my life. Even the worst person wouldn’t wish that. I have been raped, Beaten, Used and Abused, Mentally and physically and sexually. I have been torn and broken. I have 4 kids and after 20 years, I am still hanging in here because my kids are my life.

I am a 50-year-old widow and I am bipolar. I was an addict and I was never dual diagnosed so I admitted myself into mental institution thinking I was having a nervous breakdown. I found out I was bipolar. My depression has gotten worse since last year when I lost my husband in March.
I'm telling my story today because I believe it is one that should be heard. My story begins with when I met my son's father. Eventually, I was diagnosed with bipolar disorder and depression.
