Bipolar 1 Disorder - How to Survive and Thrive, 2nd Edition by Molly McHugh
My rating: 5 of 5 stars
This book was a wonderful and powerfully honest look at Bipolar Disorder from the authors perspective, as an individual who has dealt with this disease for the majority of her adult life. At times the writing felt scattered, but this only added to the honest portrayal of someone dealing with the literal ups and downs of Bipolar disorder. Molly is so open and honest about her experiences, and she blends current research and statistics with her own anecdotal experiences, to give the reader a true picture of life with bipolar. I would highly recommend this book to anyone who has been diagnosed with bipolar, as well as family and friends. With over 5.7 million Americans who are diagnosed with bipolar disorder each year, this book has the potential to help an incredible number of people. One of things I like the best about this book is the positive outlook that Molly, the author, has tried to maintain. At one point Molly states, "You have to still think of the future, not let the illness control your entire life, all moments of your life. And remind yourself that everyone is screwed up a bit, not just you."
