"I look in the mirror and what do I see?

The vision unravels of what is to be.

The shell of a woman whose life has been taken away

What does it mean to look forward to a new day?

Take me away from the life that I lead

All I feel is the need to bleed

The desire to see red is like hunger or greed.

Unzip my skin and set my heart free

Is there such a thing as a happy me?

Or carrying this burden will I always be?"

From fleeing for her life from a crazed boyfriend, to an accidental overdose of prescribed medications; and not to mention a life threatening cutting disorder and eight stays in mental institutions, Tina has overcome monumental obstacles to get to where she is now. Her goal with this book is to inspire, and to help others with Bipolar Disorder realize each has different challenges, but all can be managed with the proper amount of drive, persistence and desire to do so. In this book, her poetry tells the traumatic story of her battle back to reality from her living hell with all the raw emotion she was feeling along the way. Tina opens her heart and soul and pours it out before you in these pages through her intense, gut wrenching poems. You will follow Tina on her journey as she describes to you, through her poetry, what it took to return to reality. Through them you get close insight into how the Bipolar mind works, as it goes from extreme agitation to complete hopelessness and then to a manic euphoria. We hope that you will not only enjoy this book but will learn from it as well.

I did not understand Bipolar Disorder. This author makes it perfectly clear as I followed her through her unbelieveable journey. I felt emotional and found my eyes welling up as I read her poems, which were heart breaking at times, I could not stop reading this book. This author proves through her own healing that people suffering with this disorder can be helped. She has bared her soul to help others and should be so proud. I hope anyone who has a friend or loved one with Bipolar will share this book with them.

Such a powerful book! I have a dear friend who deals with this disorder and how I wish I could have read this book years ago! Tina walks you through her struggles and her daily determination to recovery and her return to love and healthy relationships. I recommend this book for anyone whose lives are touched by mental illness in any way.
