Again, its content is drawn from my posts on this blog. But this time the focus is widened to include not just my own experiences, but those of us bipolar people interacting in society. Included in it are topics of interest to a general audience as well as persons with bipolar disorder – among them stigma, gaslighting, and suicidal thoughts.
If you notice, there’s a copy of the book cover in the right column of this blog. Clicking on it will take you to Amazon, where you can order the paperback. (I’m still working on making an ebook available and will let you know when it’s ready.) The book is also available through Barnes & Noble and other outlets.
As regular readers of this blog will know, it’s been a real struggle getting this book to come to fruition. I feel great satisfaction in knowing that I’ve accomplished this. But I will feel even greater satisfaction if my book can help someone living with bipolar disorder cope with it a little better – or help a friend, family member, or loved one understand what living with bipolar means.
So – shameless plug! – buy a copy for yourself. Buy one for a friend or family member! And if you don’t want to or can’t buy a copy, ask your local library if they will offer Bipolar Us in their stacks.
There’s also news about my first book, Bipolar Me. It’s about to go into its second edition and will be available soon! I’ll keep you posted on that, too.
Thank you to everyone who has helped make these books possible, and to everyone who has shown an interest in them.
