Bipolar Puzzle Solution : A Mental Health Client's Perspective : 187 Answers to Questions Asked by Support Group Members About Living With Manic-depression by Bryan L. Court, Gerald E. Nelson "(Answering questions about bipolar illness and how to live with it, this book addresses 187 recovery-related questions over the broad range of interest to the patient, family, and friend, and utilizes the same question-and-answer format heard in bipolar support groups. Subjects cover a wide spectrum, including: understanding the illness; treatment methods; medications; attitudes; acceptance; faith; living problems; relationships with friends, family, and psychiatrists; support groups; disability; hospitalization; and employment difficulties. The answers were obtained from a psychiatrist, a labor law attorney, and a hospital worker. A psychiatrist (Nelson) reviewed the answers to the questions and provided a response to each section of the book)."
Manic Depressive Illness by Frederick K. Goodwin, Kay Redfield Jamison "(This book is everything you need to know about manic-depressive illness that your doctor doesn't have time to tell you. Dr. Kay Redfield Jamison has a passion for the subject and the knowledge to back it up)."
An Unquiet Mind by Kay Redfield Jamison (The author, a psychiatrist, tells her own story dealing with manic depression. You will instantly fall in love with Kay as she tells her very painful story. The book provides much needed hope for bipolars. Kay has severe Bipolar I with psychotic episodes and due to her medication, her therapy, and the supportive people in her life, she lives a very normal and happy life today. To me, the book was very comforting. You will feel less alone in your suffering. I also recommend the book for families as well as it will help families to understand just how the BP is manifested in this woman's life and what support system this woman has to help her deal with her illness. I highly recommend this book).
My Stolen Innocence by Lynnora Sumblin "(My Stolen Innocence is the story of a victim who in spite of her adversities, refuses to be fenced in by life's circumstances. Lynnora Sumblin has triumphed over a troubled childhood, deeply scared as a victim of incest between the ages of nine and fifteen. This experience led to a manic depressive condition in her young adult years that required years of medical, psychological and spiritual treatment and counseling. She shares in vivid testimony her travails as well as her recovery through the power of Spiritual nurture)."
Manic By Midnight by Faye Joy Shannon (Excellent book. Author openly discusses her life - before, after and during manic & depressive episodes. Reveals the tremendous negative impact the BP has had on her life, and those around her.
FIVE STAR REVIEW WITH AMAZON. I had a very difficult time putting this book down as it is wonderfully written).
Overcoming Depression And Manic Depression (Bipolar Depression) The Non - Drug Approach by Paul A Wider, Reuben Henriquez (Illustrator) "(Overcoming Depression and Manic Depression (Bipolar Depression) The Non-Drug Approach" will help you get well. This book is invaluable for people who cannot or will not take medication, but want to get well. It is also a must for those who use medication, since medication alone is not a cure-all.
The author himself has worked through and healed from his own depression and manic depression. Wider is also an MA in counseling)."
A Brilliant Madness: Living With Manic-Depressive Illness by Patty Duke (Patty tells her life story about her bipolar disorder, panic disorder, hallucinations, etc. She also discusses the disorder itself. "Patty Duke's book A Brilliant Madness is the first real good information about bi-polar disorder I have been able to put my hands on! The medical backup information that Gloria Hochman contributes has given me an almost unlimited list of resources to also turn to. I read this book because my 9yr old son and my current husband are both diagnosed as bi-polar, but as I read this intense book I was amazed by feelings of fear, relief, sadness, and anger. I was able to relate to much of what I read and began to see myself which is scary. I now want to find help for all of us as our area is devoid of support groups and other local means of coping with this illness. This book is truly "Brilliant" in both the writing style and the content and has given me some hope in an otherwise bleak future. I strongly recommend this book to anyone where Manic Depression has touched their lives)."
