Who, Me, Dating?

DatingNews.com
interviewed me about dating and marriage while living with bipolar disorder.
Here’s how the article starts:
Kitt O'Malley: Love, Learn & Live with Bipolar Disorder. Blogger Kitt O'Malley Opens Up About Her Experiences Living, Loving & Laughing with Bipolar Disorder

At age 30, Kitt O’Malley moved in with her parents after treatment for debilitating depression resulted in psychotic mania which left her unable to do her work as a licensed marriage and family therapist. She left her career aspirations behind, and she started seeing a psychiatrist and a therapist who treated her for what was still thought to be chronic depression.

So when the guy she was dating said “You’re the most independent woman I’ve ever met,” Kitt couldn’t help but laugh. She had never been more dependent in her life, but he didn’t see those circumstances or her mental illness. He saw her, and that in itself was a small miracle…

    Kitt that was a great interview and thanks for sharing it with us!
    I thought you were going to tell us you had a new boyfriend or something!

      The title was a teaser. Thanks for remembering the anniversary of my father’s death. This year it follows Easter. Remembering him.

    That’s awesome. The closest I’ve come to being interviewed about mental illness is the day I totally winged it for speaking at a NAMI Family-to-Family class. It was very different from my usual prepared speeches.

      Thank you for speaking at a NAMI Family to Family class. I love speaking extemporaneously (winging it).
