My aim is to help people who are struggling with bipolar, as well as people who have loved ones affected by this illness. 

My easy-to-understand answers are taken from more than 50 years of firsthand experience with this capricious illness. The book covers many subjects in depth: Basic questions about bipolar; help for those coping with the disorder; answers to questions about relationships; coping skills for depression, mania/hypomania, and psychosis. There is also a chapter on anxiety and panic attacks as this affects many people with bipolar. 

This book is packed with information given in a conversational style, not from a scientific point of view. My hope is that through my experiences I may be able to help you.

  • How do I know if I have bipolar?
  • Can someone with bipolar have a normal marriage?
  • Are bipolar and personality two separate things?
  • How can I explain to people what depression is like?
  • Is bipolar mania an emergency?
  • Can someone with psychosis lead an ordinary life?
  • How do I deal with a panic attack?


These are real questions that somebody with bipolar disorder is faced with every day.

You will find the answers to these questions and many more in my book
