I’m Blake, and I live with my daughter, husband and 2 dogs. I work with dogs by day – yes I am slighty crazy about dogs! And doodler by night, as well as a wife and Mommy. I am Bipolar, I was diagnosed 9/10 years ago, and it’s been a rollercoaster!

I want to show life honestly: the ups, the downs and the plain ridiculousness of it all! Some of this will be hilarious, some will be hard to read.
I want to show that you can live a ‘normal’ life with a mental health issue, and that its not all doom and gloom. There are times when it a huge challenge for me and my entire family, but there is also a lot of laughter and simple, normal, everyday challenges!
When I got diagnosed I thought the life I have now was an impossibility, I wish my 22 year old self could have seen it would turn out ok!
I hope you enjoy looking at this blog and that it can maybe challenge the stigma of mental health in a small way!
