Publisher's Summary

Did you know that many of the symptoms of narcissistic personality disorder also cross over into the symptoms of bipolar disorder?

One of the most important aspects of dealing with another person in a relationship, familial, school, or work setting is in researching and finding out exactly what it is that you are dealing with. If you take advice regarding narcissism and apply it to someone with bipolar disorder, you could wrongly trigger bipolar mania or depression symptoms without even realizing it. Many people have reactions to a bipolar person's emotional turmoil that only cause even further hurt between the two people. Mitigating the emotional damage that occurs in any relationship with a bipolar is crucial in having a successful relationship with that person.

As you may know, bipolar is a serious mental disorder that exhibits itself as serious emotional ups and downs, or mood swings. Bipolar sufferers can have hallucinations and psychosis episodes, though not all bipolar persons experience these. Bipolar disorder was formerly known as manic depression. People who suffer from this disorder can have abnormally happy ups ("highs") and extreme depressive down days ("lows"). They can also have mixed-state episodes, where they experience both depression and mania or hypomania at the same time.

There are different types of bipolar disorder, such as bipolar I and bipolar II. Bipolar disorder can also be classified by terms such as rapid-cycling or seasonal. Seasonal bipolar disorder often makes someone act manic in the spring and then fall into a depression in the fall. Some people with bipolar disorder can also be classified as having seasonal affective disorder (SAD) due to the changes in the sunlight and seasons that interfere with their brain biology and circadian rhythms (sleep cycles).

A list of bullet points

And as such, it’s solid. Narration is almost computerized. That keeps things in a classroom type of atmosphere. If you already understand bipolar, NPD and the tendencies to self medicare, you may get nothing from this book. If you have just realized that there’s something that isn’t right, but you are bewildered by someone in your life, this book will give you good foundation good foundation to build to rebuild yourself.
