    Door number three

    I have suffered with misdiagnosis, fruitless talk therapy, and then found real hope in a true diagnosis of Bipolar type 2 and ADD, with the right medications. This event was life saving and for those who helped, I am forever grateful. I have found that after slowing down my impulsivity and rapid mood shifts, I was lost regarding what to do with my new and improved brain: I have studied Marsha Linehan's books on DBT, but found them dense and difficult to decipher when the going got rough and I found myself in storm tossed events. What I have needed from childhood onward was a way to see the cascade of event,feeling, belief, and then behavior that has been poorly regulated within me and within my moody, alcoholic, and impulsive extended family. Thomas Marra has elegantly and simply shown the inside of the black box of my earlier life and has offered a path toward positive behaviors and self protective reflexes. He clearly states that those who suffer with mood disorders put an inordinate amount of energy toward a mood state and overreaction to life stressors that perpetuates the misery of an adult child of a painful and dark path. He shows how to gently dissect out feelings toward events and then how my preconditioned beliefs (actual gut level deep instincts) set me up for good or bad outcomes. I wish I had known this when I was a child since I must diligently work this material with several friends and my enlightened wife regularly or I feel overwhelmed with large and then small stressors. His practical and simple and profound exercises cut at the core of my early childhood programming and allow me to find meaning in suffering and real joy when I fight my way out of the paper bag of my life. I will continue to use this book for myself and my family and for those who want something to do with their thoughts and feelings that leads to real life. By the way, I am a family physician, and am thankful to offer those who suffer with mood disorders a true healing balm along with mood regulating medications.

    I find the book very helpful as well as interesting; especially

    I find the book very helpful as well as interesting;
    especially for someone who suffers from 20 different disorders.  It is very hard to be me.  I do really enjoy
    the workbook as well.  It offers a lot of thought provoking questions.  I give the book 5 stars.
