The one I was talking about was "Surviving Manic Depression" by E. Fuller Torrey & Michael B. Knable. I really rely on this book, it's great.
BP Chat night was great, much needed.
Kaiser, J.J. (2002). Nothing to Hide: Mental Illness in the Family. New York: The New Press.
The book talks about coping with mental illness from multiple perspectives. A really great resource.
Bi-Polar; 675 mg Eskalith, 25 mg mellaril (same medications & dosage since 1984)
I am Kitt and while Olivia is gone I said I would stroll through and see if anyone need anything ???
Remember the Amazon.com add on the right hand of this site has some suggestions and I believe that the site benefits from just looking at their site.
I am a huge fan of Amazon so I am a bit prejudiced. It is so easy to order and they have everything.
Of course there is always the public library too and I use that a lot.
Please email me if something pops up that you need help with.
Thanks and hugs to all
All the books that are recommended are great, I probably read and own more than half of them. They just don't tell you how the people suffered due to being bipolar. But they tell you how they were able to survive the illness, and they are of real people. They are good resource material. I know for sure that they have copies of them in the local library. Best wishes.
I added 2 more books to the list that come in handy.
