Surviving and Thriving with Bipolar Disorder: Tips from a Survivor
This self-help book describes how I’ve managed to survive and thrive with bipolar disorder for over 25 years. It offers tips on how to pick a good psychiatrist, how to handle depression, anxiety and insomnia, and how to help a loved one who’s going through a manic episode. It shares with you the lessons I’ve learned, sometimes the hard way, over the years and also explores the “good crazy” side of being bipolar–and yes, there are some good sides, believe it or not. Many with this disorder are good artists, writers, and musicians. Many are also well-organized and have good sex lives. As the best psychiatrist I ever had told me, “You’re lucky. You’re in good company.” It’s all up to you–the person who has bipolar disorder–to decide if you’re lucky or not. To decide if your glass is half-full or half-empty. I sincerely hope my book will help you and your loved ones. It has received Five and Four Star Reviews.
