Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
In this memoir cum self-help book, Eron relates her struggle to help her late husband cope with bipolar disorder. Jim, a clinical psychologist, had experienced several frightening episodes of mania before meeting his wife, a social worker trained in psychotherapeutic techniques, and so they both should have known the dangers of Jim's going off lithium (why he does so is never made very clear, although he did feel as if the drug slowed his thought processes). Without his stabilizing medication, Jim changes from a loving husband to an obnoxious, verbally abusive stranger seeking a divorce. As their marriage unravels, Eron consults numerous experts, awaiting the onset of the depressive phase of Jim's illness, during which he could be hospitalized. Unfortunately, when depression arrives, it descends swiftly, and Jim commits suicide before anyone can assist him. Eron provides an excellent list of spousal survival strategies, as well as a helpful bibliography. For all public libraries. Copyright 2005 Reed Business Information.

    Courageous Love for the mentally ill

    Judy Eron wrote the most courageous life and love story I've ever experienced. I feel like she became my friend right away as she validated every emotion I felt in dealing with my prior husband's depression and potential suicide. I do not know how she could feel both the extremes of love and fear, remain respectful of Jim, and yet tell the story of their painful end. I pray that society will learn to embrace mental illness the way that Judy and Jim did as professionals, and yet help others find the courage to be human in our failures, all the while loving those who are mentally ill with the same gusto as Judy loves. This book is a must read for society as we all experience mental illness in one form or another!

    I read 'What Goes Up..' twice and will probably read it again!

    Dear Judy, I just read your book for the second time and thought I would let you know how much it helped me. I also have a husband who suffers from bipolar disorder and so much of what you describe is familiar to me. I can especially relate to your description of how your husband's illness effected you. Your book has been the most helpful to me of all the books about bipolar disorder that I have read.

    Provides sanity in a seemingly insane experience

    Judy's book gives piece of mind to the loved ones of those who suffer from Bipolar Disorder or have gone through a manic episode. I would recommend this to anyone who finds themselves in that position. It reaffirms that you are not crazy and you must take care of yourself in order to be of any help to your loved one. Her story is tragic at times, but is ultimately a profound learning experience.
