This book has helped me much more than any other book on the subject. The author tells the unvarnished truth, but also offers hope and humor. I totally recommend!
Helps to understand the disease better. I would also recommend it to relatives/friends of someone with bipolar disease. I couldn't put the book down!
I was DX'd in 2004, bipolar 2.. while sick and in a State hospital. Since then, I have read ALOT of books on bipolar, trying to soak in as much info. and understanding as I can. Its such a complex illness. And they all offered something for me to walk away with. When I saw this book on B&N and read what the book was about, I knew I had to read the entire thing. From page 1... I could totally relate to it. It was almost as though I were looking in a mirror... or like the book was written about me. And there was sooo much that I learned from it too. I didn't realize that exercise helps mood swings. There's sooo much!! And its written with humor, so you might find yourself giggling a time or two. :) Finally!! Someone understands! And in order for that understanding to be as awesome as it is... it must come from fellow bipolar. Thank God for this book. I love it!
I also Recommend "Suicide Notes." Its a novel about a teenaged boy on the psych ward... this book is great! A funny twist on a serious problem.
