Raleigh, North Carolina
Mother of a 14 month old little girl with Dandy Walker Syndrome and other birth defects. I find hope in God's sovereignty over her life and know that she has been placed on this earth for a reason.  Having a child with special needs doesn't leave alot of *free time* but if I happen upon some, I love sewing and other crafts, jogging, cooking, and reading.

Yet I have been struggling to cope and understand this disorder... what does it mean? How do the brain imbalances affect my behavior and moods? Why do I rapid cycle? Why do I get obsessive thoughts? Is there a link between mania and memory? Is there...
