I had spent tons of time (and money) looking for a relevant, helpful and intelligent book on bi-polar II. There are countless books focusing on bipolar I, but very few on it's step-sibling bipolar II. There are even more books addressing depression, but none on hypo-mania. Just when I was finally giving up on ever finding a helpful book this one fell into my lap! And I was so excited.
I can't stress how HELPFUL and RELEVENT this book is to anyone with bipolar but especially bipolar II. The first part of the book focuses on educating the reader---about diagnostic techniques, brain chemistry, medication, etc. The second half helps the reader to understand what steps to take next after the diagnosis.
This book gave me great hope and comfort. My hope came in realizing that there would one day be a time when this disorder didn't color my every day and I would just live life. And comfort came in knowing that I was not the only one experiencing these challenges and in the validation that I wasn't making it all up. I recognized myself in so much of this book.
The biggest endorsement I can give this book is that I immediately ordered copies for my parents and closest friends. The books does an incredible job on communicating what life feels like from the patients perspective and I know this information has been invaluable to my family and friends. They have become active partners in ensuring I stay safe and stable and recognize warning signs and problems on there own. And for that I will always be eternally grateful.
This book addresses both bipolar I and II and gives equal time to both. It includes exercises--relevant ones including what to bring to a doctor's visit and how to recognize stress triggers--that even I completed.
I really cannot say enough great things about this book and I encourage all bipolar patients to read it!
