I was given a copy of this book by the Author for an honest review.
When asked if I would review MOTHERING THROUGH BIPOLAR, I jumped at the chance to read the book. I have family that is bipolar and educating people on it is a priority. If people know what to look for in people with bipolar they could save lives. This book is about one woman’s struggle in getting diagnosed with bipolar and later finding the right group of medications that would work in controlling her episodes of bipolar. I really enjoyed this book and give it 4/5 stars.
There are times that my family just drives me totally crazy. If you don’t give them your 100% total attention, it is like starting world war 3. First starts the ranting and raving. Then starts remarks that “I will just get rid of the computers, and the games, and I might get some work out of you.” I am a very quiet person, I don’t like to talk much, my mom and sister does enough of that for three people. Some days it is hard to follow their conversations anyway. I swear they are ADHD, they bounce around talking about 12 different topics at once. I have become very good a tuning them out, otherwise I would be a raving lunatic.
Then there is the loaded question of do you want to go with me to the store or what ever other place they want to go. If you don’t jump up right then and there, you will never hear the end of it. “Well I don’t need anyone to go with me!” Well if you didn’t need anyone, why did you ask? Some days I just don’t want to get out of bed, because I don’t know what day I am in for. Maybe that is why I am on medication and they are not? Maybe I need to become insane also. That must be the key to not needing medication, become insane.
