I have had bipolar disorder for some years now. I am also a mother of three, I suffer a lot with my disorder because I had to grow up fast and I feel like I am alone a lot. I was 16 years old when I had my first child who is five now. I wasn’t diagnosed with my disorder until a year after my daughter was born when my grandmother died in 2010. Until now, a lot has grown and broken me so bad that I feel like I shouldn’t be here, but I have my children to live for and I just think of them when I feel the emptiness inside me. My kids play a big part in my life because I wish I had siblings at the age they are. I love going places and doing kid things. I feel more like a teen than an adult at 22years old. I don’t fight myself for having kids at this age because they give me something to do and live for. I really feel if I didn’t have them, I wouldn’t be here to write this blog today. I’m blessed to be a mother of three kids with my disorder.
