Join us in the readings gallery as Diana Dodds presents her memoir written to demonstrate how and why families keep secrets related to mental illness. Dodds uses her life’s story and the story of her father’s extended family to shed light on this common dilemma, and express hope in exposing it to light.
Diana Dodds was born and raised in Northwest Kansas where she met and married her husband in Wichita. She attended college and nursing school and became an RN who worked in hospital-based care for thirty-five years. During their married life, they moved to Western Washington, where she completed her BSN. She and her husband raised two children. Diana has been diagnosed as bipolar type 1 for 40 years.
