About Me

Hi! My name is Carrie, I have bipolar disorder, and this is my blog. Yeah, that’s a lot to start with, but I like to lay all the cards on the table. The goal of my blog is to share my story. I hope to raise awareness about bipolar disorder and help reduce the stigma against those who struggle with mood disorders. I’m also promoting my book Daddy Issues: A Memoir, which is available for purchase as an ebook, print paperback and hard cover book.

Daddy Issues: A Memoir

I began my career as a feature writer for an online publication. I then worked as a film and television graphic designer for sixteen years. In 2021, I retired from the entertainment industry to focus on mental health advocacy and suicide prevention.

I’m a writer for WebMD, BP Magazine; the bphope blog; the National Alliance on Mental Illness (NAMI); the Depression and Bipolar Support Alliance (DBSA); Medical News Today; Suicide Awareness Voices of Education (SAVE); Stigma Free Society; and several award-winning bipolar publications.
