Overview

For Kyle Bishop, making wrong choices was just a way of life. But as a young girl, she had no idea these bad decisions were a direct result of living with bipolar disorder. The life she recounts in Bipolar Barbie is one marked by poor judgment-until a proper diagnosis and medication changed Benson's life.

Benson tells of a life filled with chaos. Born of a sixteen-year-old mother into a dysfunctional family, Bishop must cope with her own marriage at age sixteen and divorce just weeks later; six subsequent marriages; a destructive lifestyle of two- or three-day parties; her confinement in a mental institution-and her eventual diagnosis of bipolar disorder.

Bipolar Barbie provides an intimate understanding of the disorder's effects, distills the stigma attached to bipolar disorder, and shows that with proper medical treatment, there can be hope for those who are afflicted with this disease.

    Great read that shines a light on important subject

    Some people go through life being "the family screw-up" and making poor and impulsive choices. They are labeled, often unfairly out of ignorance and judgmental stereotypes. Many of these people self-medicate with alcohol, drugs or risky sexual behaviors. Many have mood disorders and their decisions are guided by a chemical imbalance in their brain. It can be undiagnosed for decades but with proper diagnosis, medication and regular doctor's visits, it can be a calmer and much more stable life. This book really illustrates this point beautifullyand without judgment. A great read if you or someome you love suffers from Bipolar Disorder. Thank you for this book!

    Not Worth It

    Very poorly written and there is no flow to the story at all.
