ADVOCATE

I run a website called Ask a Bipolar. You should check it out!

Though fame and fortune would be lovely, Marybeth’s overall goal has quite altered since the day she started writing her first novel. She’s not looking for validation or riches, she’s looking to help others. By taking her life experiences and collaborating them with the experiences of others in her situation, she is hopeful that one day, people will say the word Bipolar and think it’s no different than heart disease or diabetes, instead of assuming that those suffering from this illness are “crazy”. And hopefully one day schools will be prepared to deal with children suffering from bipolar. And hopefully, someday soon, at least a handful of parents won’t feel so dang alone because no one out there understands what they are going through. Nor will the teenager who can’t figure out what’s going on in there head and why they feel the way they do. And the adult who suffers from depression, even though they are taking all their medications and doing everything right, will know that there are other people out there dealing with the same thing, and hopefully they’ll choose NOT to go off those meds as I did.

Am I a crazy big dreamer? Heck yeah! But someone’s gotta dream big!
