Hello Everyone!! My name is Lisa. I’m a single 53 y/o who lives with my 21 year old daughter’who is living with a diagnosis of severe bipolar and her 2 toddler sons, 4 and 3, who I have had guardianship of and raised since birth. Although she is currently in a great space and has been using the quarantine as a time to finally learn to parent and bond with the boys.

I have had my own relationship with mental illness…being diagnosed with bipolar and ptsd. I have been involved with therapy since childhood, after trauma at a young age. Ì used to work as an outreach worker and community educator. My health issues have caused me to need to stop working, but I try to remain active in the community as much as I can.
