Welcome to my blog, I am Emma and mum to 6, married to Matt and I have an unusual set of talents, writing is one of them, hence the blog.
In 2009 my life fell apart around me, I was diagnosed with bipolar and along with my confidence and self-worth, my mind was not the only thing damaged, I lost my career and friends.
While my world was being turned upside down I struggled with the changes. I was once a successful business women who suddenly became a stay at home mum to 6. I no longer socialised and I shut myself off. All my dreams were squashed and I lost who I was.
In 2010 alone and afraid I created a group for mothers on Facebook, desperate to meet other mums and have some contact with the outside world. The Real Supermum was born, almost 3 years later that group is home to hundreds of mothers who call it “their lifeline.”
I began The Real Supermum Blog which soon became an award winning mummy blog housing hundreds of real life experiences from mothers all around the world. It has allowed them a voice.
Mental illness almost destroyed me, yet here I am fighting back and teaching you all the things I have learned along the way.
I alone cannot change the world, but I can cast a stone across the waters to create many ripples. – Mother Teresa
