So Many Selfies

It’s #mentalhealthmonth so I’m using this #throwbackthursday to tell you how it felt to become a mom with bipolar disorder. I could not believe my luck. I had a medicated pregnancy and then I had a healthy baby girl. I would take a thousand selfies of us together — partly because of how amazed I was that this was happening, but mostly because it looked so different than I thought it would. “Bipolar” is a scary word and I had been told most of my adult life I might kill my baby if I had one. I had a lot to unlearn. I still do. These selfies will always mean so much to me. ❤️
