Synopsis

Bipolar is currently the most commonly diagnosed emotional/psychiatric condition, and diagnosis tends to come when one is in ones late teens or early 20s. And yet almost nothing has been written about it from eye level and a young persons perspective. This book brilliantly fills that gap. When I was diagnosed at age 19, my parents went to a bookstore and bought me a pile of books about bipolar. I threw them away in disgust (actually, exchanged them for books of poetry)not because I wasnt curious about bipolar, but because all the books treated the subject with clinical rubber gloves. They were dry, annoying, and made me feel like a disease, not a person. I wrote this book because its the book I should have been given when I was diagnosed.With chapters of advice on everything from how to get off the floor after the blow of a bipolar diagnosis to how to think about psychiatry and manage your meds to how to deal with thoughts of suicide to hippy shit like meditation, herbs, and other non-medical bipolar helpers to navigating the healthcare system, this is the first self-help book by a bipolar young adult to other bipolar young adults.
