Navigating life with a teenager….who happens to have bipolar disorder

About me

I am a daughter to a pretty unique group of parents that taught me to take the good with the bad. I am a wife to a wonderful and patient man who accepts me and my son with unconditional love. Most importantly I am a mother to an amazing teenage boy who is imaginative and sensitive to the world around him and who taught me to view that world differently.

This blog is about the journey my son and I have taken and continue to take on a daily basis as he learns to live with his bipolar disorder diagnosis.  I have his permission to share our story on here because in his words “It’s important to help anyone we can”.  So, this is where I share our challenges and triumphs. This is also where I hope to spread awareness of mental illness in children and teens.

  1. Thank you for following “A Way With Words.” My joy in writing is made more complete when people read what I’ve written and even more as they respond.

    I write mainly about faith and mental illness though am known to dabble in other subjects, stories, and poems. If you have any requests please contact me.

    I appreciate what you have here in your blog. May you be blessed in your writing and life, as you bless others.

    Gratefully,
    Tony Roberts
