Welcome! My name is Tanya Davidson. I’m almost 49 years old, a wife of 21 years to my amazing, loving husband and best friend, Norman and a mother of two wonderful children, Shawn (26) and Halli (19). I am going to be a first time Glamma in July and I’m beyond thrilled to experience life with a grandchild. I am working toward a Bachelors degree majoring in English & Creative Writing with an emphasis on fiction with a minor in Psychology at SNHU. My passions are writing, reading, being on or near the water, dancing, traveling, running and spending quality time with family and friends!
I have struggled with mental health issues since the age of 13. I was just diagnosed in February 2020 at the age of 47 with Bipolar 2 Disorder and Generalized Anxiety. I have been misdiagnosed as having depression for 34 years and treated with depression medications, which inadvertently made the Bipolar worse.
Divinely Bipolar is a blog about my life – the good, the bad, the crazy, the unbelievable, the hypomania, the debilitating depression, the anxiety, my salvation & faith and everything in between. I will attempt to explain, to the best of my ability, what it is like to live with a brain illness and how it affects every aspect of your life. It is my mission within this blog to be as open and honest as possible regarding the events in my life, no matter the reaction, to give an accurate account and depiction. I will give my viewpoint from a Christian perspective, reveal my maddening journey and try to give hope to anyone no matter where in the mental illness scope they happen to be. Mostly, I’m bearing all to let you know that you are not alone! xoxo Be Divine – Tanya
