Publisher's Summary

It's no joke to have bipolar depression. It could mean the difference between life and death. In between, there are periods of intense suffering that can make one feel eternally helpless and hopeless. 

There are a lot of falsehoods about bipolar, but we're going to discuss bipolar disorder evidence extracted from research. Bipolar disorder is not a kind of mental illness, but a disease that can be controlled and treated. The condition is also inherited, and more often than not, a person with a disorder has at least one bipolar parent. It is a disorder characterized by extreme mood swings from a depressed mood to a hyper mood. Depressive mood is the "low" where patients feel anxious and not in the mood to indulge in anything while the' high' is where patients are hyper active and restless. 

Bipolar disorder is also called manic-depressive disorder and affects the mind and energy of a person whose behavior is insufficient. The length of intermittent episodes of mania and depression can vary from hours to weeks and even months. Although episodes occur in separate phases, they sometimes occur together in a state called a mixed bipolar state. The truth of bipolar disorder is that it develops in adolescent years or in some cases in early adulthood, while 90 percent of cases start before the age of 20. 

The causes of bipolar disorder are unknown, but they are likely to be determined by multiple factors. Family and adoption research have repeatedly shown a genetic predisposition to mood disorders. First-degree members of people with bipolar disorder are much more likely than the general population to experience bipolar depression, unipolar depression, and anxiety. At this point, however, there is no clear evidence that a single gene is related to the transmission of bipolar disorder; rather, family history appears to increase susceptibility to several disorders. 

The book is going to help you or a loved one not only survive the extreme and debilitating illness, but thrive. Anything you can do beyond the psychotropic drugs recommended by a doctor, or in addition to taking these drugs, will allow them to be more successful and less harmful. It's written with heart and humor, by someone who knows the nuances intimately - not just another book by a licensed medical professional who has never dealt with the condition. 

You will learn how to potentially reduce the severity of its devastating highs and lows.

Excellent treatment of the illness

Having two daughters with BPD, now in their 20's, wish I would have had this when they were younger! This is compassionate and really explains the disorder and how to validate your loved one when they are upset to help them calm down.
