"Natasha's book transforms the terrible into the lyrical, the sad into the hopeful and the confusing into an educational experience that speaks to anyone touched by bipolar disorder symptoms. She knows that learning to manage this illness takes time and a sense of humor. Natasha creates a realistic, stark and always enlightening book. She's aware of the contradictions she presents and offers an honest look at what it's really like to live with this illness. Lost Marbles addresses the questions we all have, but often don't know who to ask for information.What does it feel like to be manic? What is it really like on the psych ward? Is depression forever? Can people with bipolar disorder get better? We learn through her stories of how she finds answers to these questions. I recommend this book for anyone who wants to be entertained while learning the extremely important strategies we all need to live successful, stable and joyful lives."
-- Julie A. Fast, author of Loving Someone with Bipolar Disorder, Take Charge of Bipolar Disorder and Get it Done When You're Depressed

Many times I have internalized questions- maybe inappropriate- she makes me understand I am not alone with my thoughts. If you, a family member or Medical student, in psychiatry or not- ( the only way stigma can be broken is through education) this book rates right up there with An Unquiet Mind. My only question is why she doesn't write for BP magazine. Thank you - you have helped me 3 fold!!!
Natasha’s book is chock full of nuggets and pearls of wisdom. Her book has been a game changer and paradigm shifter for me. Natasha Tracy is the first person who really understands and “gets” bipolar disorder in a very personal and remarkable way. I have felt my own emotions, processed my own thoughts and cognitive distortions (thinking traps) and heard my own voice in her writing. I have been a follower and fan of Natasha Tracy’s work for over five years. I have only read a hundred or so of her thousand plus articles. I have watched her videos, listened to her podcasts, and have read her articles and blog consistently. I have learned more from her and related to her more than anyone else I have met in the mental health field. I am a newly licensed peer counselor, veteran and an engineer. I have worked in telecommunications and IT and feel that Natasha Tracy’s work experiences have contributed to her highly disciplined and organized book and work ethic.
Every section of her book is flat out amazing! She has written about her personal experiences, life, defined bipolar disorder, provided an overview of SMIs, discussed sexuality and has covered many other topics. Her sections on prescription drugs, therapies, coping mechanisms, cognitive distortions and life management strategies are all monumental and informative. I specifically benefitted from and appreciated her sections on the pros and cons of the recovery movement and other developments in the mental health and support communities and industry. She has provided a necessary and vital resource for anyone involved with mental health in any way. “Don’t leave home without it” (old American Express credit card ad). I have carried my laptop and her book to classes, meetings and to the groups I attend or facilitate regularly. She is definitely wise and has amassed a wealth of experience throughout her life.
“Lost Marbles” is an irreplaceable, essential and inimitable resource! It is an elegant and resourceful combination of an autobiography, self-help manual, road map and future life planning and coaching guidebook. All people who live with SMIs are seemingly and unwillingly baptized by fire into a club for life. Natasha Tracy has provided a roadmap to all the lost, wandering souls who are looking for light, peace, healing and relief from SMIs. Natasha’s description of the harrowing details and experience of living with bipolar disorder and SMIs each and every day is not sugar coated at all! She outlines mental health disorders and deciphers the complex symptomology and pathology of many SMIs. She dispels myths, explains the damaging consequences of stigmas, and reveals the gravity and detrimental effects of the power of cognitive distortions and delusions. Bipolar disorder and SMIs have long lasting and debilitating effects on our lives!
Natasha Tracy’s book is one of a kind, has good research and will positively impact and help thousands and millions of people! I highly recommend her book to everyone and anyone who is curious about, lives with or is affected by bipolar disorder or any SMIs! Thank you for writing “Lost Marbles”! You have written a bold, courageous, substantial and incredible book and have amassed a large and solid body of work over the years!
Natasha Tracy is a harbinger of hope, a word smith, an honored sister and friend for all involved with mental health topics. I wish her all the best and lots of success in her life and career!

Natasha Tracy " Lost marbles " delivers what other failed to deliver . Incredibly honest , presenting bipolar disorder for what it is , insightful and offering both understanding and hope .Natasha lives with bipolar disorder herself and
she does not try to sugar coat the difficulties she faces .She is a warrior .She fights for her better tomorrow .
I too ,like herself hear from the well meaning people :" Don't be so harsh on yourself " .Natasha knows all too well that if she is not harsh on herself she will fall apart , wont achieve anything meaningful , will fail .She earned my respect from the first pages .Her advice is invaluable . The language she uses is clear and makes it easy to " get it " . If there is one book I wish I had read around the time of my diagnosis its this one . Thank you .
