Perhaps you have just been diagnosed and don’t know where to start. Or maybe you’ve had bipolar 1 for a long time, and tried everything but failed. You may even have had problems at home, or at work, or with making friends. Whatever your situation, if you are still suffering all the symptoms of this debilitating illness, I will be able to help you.
It is very disheartening when you are trying as hard as you can, but no matter what you do things keep going wrong. That’s when you are inclined to blame yourself which makes you feel even worse.
I know exactly how you feel because I have had a lifetime of bipolar 1 and have had many ups and downs, as well. Now, I am happy to say that I have been totally free of symptoms for three years and am so excited to share the key to my success with you.
You will find this book covers all kinds of topics, maybe things you hadn’t even thought of before. You may like to try new recipes that can help you eat a nutritious diet, learn how to do creative visualization, and try new organizational skills to keep you on track. I have it all here for you in this book. And I have written it to help you get well and stay well.
We shall discuss what it is like to feel overwhelmed, face bipolar aging, menopause, and substance abuse. And I will help you handle all the blips that you experience between episodes.
The book will also cover topics like psychiatrists, medications, psychotherapists and different forms of therapy as these are the first line of call in your treatment plan. We will discuss yoga, tai chi, qigong, meditation, mindfulness, and you will even find creative visualization exercises you can try on your own or with a friend.
I will also talk about the things you can do to manage bipolar 1 properly like routines, triggers, coping skills, mood charts, support systems, and relationships. And when things go wrong, we shall discuss how to manage that too.
Don’t worry. You don’t have to be at the mercy of your symptoms. You have a say in your illness, and I will show you what to do. You may have failed before, and you may fail along the way, but there is hope in this book for a better life with bipolar 1 disorder.
Let’s get started.
