Hello, my name is Candee.   I am a wife, mother, minister and loyal friend to many.  I am also a singer, humbled and truly grateful to my Creator for the gift of song.    

This blog, however, is not really about singing songs to a melody but metaphorically singing to the tune of life's experiences. 
Here's a bit about me:

I was diagnosed with Bipolar Disorder a little over 10 years ago.  I tried to tell anyone who would listen during my teen years that something in my brain wasn't wired right.   My parents said I was being dramatic, my siblings got a kick out of me being the family clown, bouncing off the walls.  My friends, however, emphatically said: "Oh no girlfriend, you don't FIX that, you RIDE it like the wind!" 

......So I did....then....BAM!  I ran into what felt like a wall of nails.  Suddenly I woke up to a nasty bout of depression that crippled me for a long time.

Due to the right cocktail of meds,  I'm relatively back on my feet.  

That's just one of three "significant others" in my life;  added is my Husband of 28 years and Rheumatoid Arthritis.  Ed keeps me grounded when RA and/or BP knocks me to the ground.

Blogging is one way I'll fight the "thorns in my flesh".  I'm looking forward to harmonizing with you.
