My name is Janis and I have PTSD, depression, and bipolar disorder.  I have decided to blog about my journey better mental health and to recovery. I have been dealing with this since I was a child but mostly bipolar disorder has been diagnosed and undiagnosed a couple of times. You see I lived in Vermont at one point and then moved to Maine so things changed depending on where I lived and who I saw for therapy and for medication management.

I am 35 years old, a mom to two awesome kids, and wife to a wonderful husband. I am a Christian so don’t be surprised if you see Bible verses in my blog posts.  They are what help me get through rough times and help me stay positive in good times.
