My world came crashing down in 2009 when I was diagnosed with bipolar; I lost my career, friends and dreams along with my mind.
In 2010 alone and afraid I created a group for mothers on Facebook, desperate to meet other mums and have some contact with the outside world. The Real Supermum was the result, almost 3 years later that group is home to hundreds of mothers who call it “their lifeline.”
The blog was created in 2011, a place that enabled me to write about my fears and thoughts, trying to make sense of all that had happened. It opened the floodgates to anonymous blogging; hundreds of mothers have shared their own experiences here on the blog too. The blog gave them a voice.
Mental illness almost destroyed me, yet here I am fighting back and embarking on a new journey.
