I am thrilled to announce that I have been selected to be part of the 2018 BookShark writing team. When I started this blog a few months ago I never imagined that I would be a guest post writer for anyone, but I am so thankful for this opportunity. Want to check out my new guest post?

Here is a sneak peak…

How Homeschooling Helps Me Manage My Bipolar Disorder

  • Anxiety…
  • Depression…
  • Bipolar disorder…

Although millions of people have been diagnosed with these mental illnesses, there is still a stigma attached to having them. At the age of 15, I was diagnosed with bipolar disorder, and for years I let that label control my life. I lived in constant fear that someone outside of my family would find out about my mental health struggles and hold it against me or question everything I do as a parent especially since I homeschool.

Once I stopped letting fear rule my life, I realized that homeschooling actually helps me manage my bipolar disorder. Homeschooling has brought a structure to life that my family didn’t previously have. This newfound, flexible structure opened the door to incorporating more natural treatments for my bipolar into our daily lives. With these natural treatments and an incredible curriculum, I am able to both manage my disorder and successfully educate my children.

You can read the rest of this guest post over on BookShark’s blog. Please feel free to share. I think it is important for other parents who are living with bipolar disorder know that they are not alone. Homeschooling truly has helped me manage my mental illness.

Thank you for checking out my guest post…

I look forward to writing for BookShark over the next year. I hope through this process you all get to know me a little bit more.

  1. You have such an amazing story! So many of us moms suffer from depression and other ailments, but we don’t always like to talk about it. I think we are much stronger when we share and can support each other!
