The Pits and the Pendulum: A Life with Bipolar Disorder

Synopsis

"Spending a week doing nothing but exploring the possibilities of Lego, thereby risking yet another job; impulsively sinking all his savings into wildly impractical self-employment ventures; sleepless nights, gripped by the need to write - these are just some manifestations of the often damaging periods of manic, uninhibited energy Brian Adams has experienced since his mid-twenties. But as a sufferer of bipolar disorder (also known as manic depression), he has been hospitalized several times with debilitating depression, undergone electric shock treatment and numerous drug therapies, and even gone so far as to attempt to take his own life." "This account gives insight into how it feels to live with bipolar disorder. It is illuminating, and entertaining, reading for people with mental health problems, their families and professional carers." Title Summary field provided by Blackwell North America, Inc.
