My name is Hendy Friedman. My late father had severe childhood trauma and bipolar disorder. I have a son with Asperger's syndrome and comorbid bipolar disorder, and a daughter who is twice exceptional. I've worked as a special educator for most of my career, in various special education settings and in private practice. I have a YouTube channel titled Hendy F, My Heart on My Sleeve, in which I regularly share some of my journal entries.
