Hi everyone! I'm NuttyMomma. I joined this forum because I wanted to be able to share and learn about mental illness. I have been treated for depression and anxiety disorders for years. Looking back I have suffered since I was a teen but times being what they were I was called rebellious. I am a mom of 5 and I have two daughters who are bi-polar, one with anxiety and ocd and one with anxiety . My son so far is doing well. Mental illness treatment in my area is frustrating at best. Having insurance or not doesn't make it any easier. The good news is many stigmas that used to be attached to being mentally ill are disappearing but treatment is still not where it should be. I talk too much. sorry...hope to get to know you all.
