I was diagnosed with bipolar disorder when I was 33 years old. Although I lived my entire life with mood swings, it was not until then that the doctors' got it right. Before then I was diagnosed with Major Depressive Disorder, which made sense because I only sought help when I was depressed. Since my diagnosis, I made it my mission to reach out to others' who are coping with bipolar and depression. I have ran my own blog for over 3 years, wrote "Moorestorms A Guide for the Bipolar Parent" and am doing advocacy work within my own community. I also am on the Consumer Advisory Council for the International Bipolar Foundation and run my own bipolar support group. I am also married to my high school sweetheart and we have 7 children together.
