This book is a long-needed answer to prayer for the family members and loved ones living with or loving a bipolar sufferer. There are many books for victims of bipolar disorder, but very little material available for the significant others suffering along with them. This book helps loved ones deal with their own doubts and fears, helps them adjust their own thinking and behaviors to keep their equilibrium when the bipolar's world goes into a whirl, and gives valuable concrete suggestions and HOW TO hints for maintaining inner peace while outwardly dealing with the bipolar's behaviors. "It's not your fault and it's not your responsibility" are the most "free-ing" words a loved one can hear, and this book shows you how to accept and live in that freedom while you love your bipolar.

This is an excellent book! It for anybody who has anybody with BiPolar in your life. I myself have the disorder, but the fact is what the people we love go through. It explains alot, and gives help to try in reclaiming yourown inner peace. I know, I have been called a whirlwind myself. We say things we don't mean or even remember and I myself will never know what this actually has done to others. This book is just that for the " others " and was very information and enjoyable reading. I highly recommend this book.

This book is not only an easy read, easy on the eyes, the nerves, and the soul, it provides excellent, how-to information for persons who find themselves involved with a bipolar sufferer. You will find understanding and common sense ideas as well as permission not to be engulfed by the problems of your loved one, but to deal with them realistically, as only one who has done herself can relate. Where was this book years ago?

If you have a manic-depressive anywhere in your life, this book is a must read. It is written from a loving and compassionate woman who was willing to bare her and her mate's souls. Much thanks to Lynn and Bob for their willingness to tell their story. From personal experience, I too know that simply trying to "get along" with a manic-depressive sufferer, and in our case, with alcohol addiction is no easy task. Though their path bumpy, Bob and Lynn are a success story. I believe Lynn's book can give much hope to those who need to know they are not alone. Her tips are invaluable. I want to personally thank both of them for all the tidbits of advice they gave me over the past year relative to understanding manic-depression. Go Lynn!

Bipolar disorder, or manic depression, wrecks havoc with not only the life of the sufferer, but also with the family. One of the most difficult decisions a partner can make is to stay with someone who has bipolar disorder despite the mood swings, financial burden, and pain. For those of us who stay in the relationship, MANIC DEPRESSION: HOW TO LIVE WHILE LOVING A MAINIC DEPRESSIVE by Lynn Bradley is a godsend.
I first read this book when a loved one was diagnoses last summer. While I've subsequently read longer, more scholarly works filled with information, it is Bradley's voice I hear in the night when I try to make sense of the insanity that at times rules our lives. A year later, I still smile recalling the story of the man who was appalled to be diagnoses, asking her if she can believed it, describes herself as a manic depressive magnet. If there's someone around with this illness, they find her. Boy, do I know exactly what she means!
Bradley's message to live, not in spite of but with this illness is encouraging. It is possible to create a stable environment for the family. It is possible to get off the emotional roller coaster and live even as the patient continues to cycle. Educational, informative, and filled with hope, MANIC DEPRESSION: HOW TO LIVE WHILE LOVING A MAINIC DEPRESSIVE is a must read. Very highly recommended.
