Soper, MD, Diplomate, American Board of Psychiatry and NeurologyExcerpt from Jinnys Story:Thats the hardest endeavor most days—finding balance.I really wish everyone could understand it is a physical problem in my brain due to chemical imbalances. I dont want to be thought of as crazy or weak.Im scared. Im harsh enough on myself and I dont need others judging me as well.Millions of lives are affected by bipolar disorder. Unique among thousands of titles on the subject, Being Bipolar presents powerful stories of those living with the disorder and from loved ones perspectives. Individual personal stories are written in their own words, unlike other books with their focus on medical information or one persons life story. Personal experiences of pain, growth, fear, and hope are shared, seeking to give support and break through the misinformation and stigma associated with the disorder.Rachel Ellen Koski, an award-winning editor, is the story collector and editor. She tells of more than thirty years of learning, accepting, and growing through her own challenges of being bipolar. This is the book I wanted when first diagnosed and all along my journey, for myself and for my loved ones.
