Johannesburg, South Africa (PRWEB) September 12, 2011
Xlibris, the print-on-demand self-publishing services provider, announced today the release of Pendulum. Authored by Loren Ogin, this book is an in-depth study on the issue of Bipolar Mood Disorder and an expression of freedom and letting go of her anger towards those who destroyed her dignity and self-esteem and a revelation of her struggles to become a “whole person” again.
Pendulum is an insightful book that looks into the many aspects of Bipolar Mood Disorder. From the definition of the illness to identifying symptoms to coping with it, this book offers information anyone needs in order to understand this illness and how medication works—providing approaches on how to deal with the anger and other erratic behaviours that go along with the disorder. Here, the author also shares of the consequent discrimination and stigmatization of “coming out of the closet” as a homosexual through her own personal experience. As this book provides beneficial information, it is also a story of the author’s journey through life—and homosexuality.
Through Pendulum, the author hopes that the information she presented will help readers and their families and promotes understanding and acceptance instead of discrimination. This book is available in trade paperback and Ebook formats.
This book will be featured at the 2011 Frankfurt Book Fair in Frankfurt, Germany, on October 12-16, 2011. For more information on this book, interested parties may log on to http://www.Xlibris.com.
About the Author
Loren Ogin was born in Johannesburg, South Africa during the Apartheid era. Her schooling thus promoted the perpetuation of the philosophy of the Government that was in power. She had always fought for the “under-dog” and injustice where she could. She graduated as a social worker in 1989 and began her mission to “change the world” she lived and worked in, from hospital, children’s home and psychiatric facilities. Her passion for acceptance of people suffering from psychiatric disorders became her passion even before she was diagnosed with Bipolar Disorder. Coming out of the closet as a homosexual was the hardest and most liberating feeling she has experienced. She hopes this book will also promote acceptance of gay people instead of stigmatization and discrimination.
