Two Bipolar Chicks Guide to Survival: Tips for Living with Bipolar Disorder, is a practical, life-saving personal arsenal of tips for wellness from the best selling author of I’m Not Crazy Just Bipolar, Wendy K. Williamson, and Honora Rose.
Bipolar Disorder affects over 5.7 million people—and the millions of people who love and live with them. Two Bipolar Chicks Guide to Survival: Tips for Living with Bipolar Disorder spells out their personal experience for success with bipolar disorder.
Readers of Williamson’s first book sent an overwhelming outcry requesting advice in coping with Bipolar Disorder. This put Williamson on the path with co-writer Rose to compile a set of tips to manage this debilitating and sometimes deadly disorder.
Williamson states, “I received a lot of feedback from readers and their families who wanted to know more about wellness, and how I stay on top of this deadly illness on a daily basis. It’s a battle both Honora and I fight, so we compiled a list of things we do to stay well. The book represents three decades worth of survival skills that we use daily.” Honora added, “There is no cure, but there is hope. If someone who is struggling could adapt a lifestyle using our tips, they could minimize the severity of their episodes. Life can be easier but it takes effort and discipline. It can mean the difference between going to the hospital for a full-blown manic episode versus a week or two of hypomania that can be treated, closely and carefully, at home. This illness can derail us quite easily.”
From medication and pill trays to doctors and therapists, and sex and mania, these bipolar chicks will educate and entertain as they pull out all the stops. Don’t expect sugar coating on your cupcake, but you will find their approach touching and enlightening with humor and understanding.
According to Andy Berman, Author of Electroboy: A Memoir of Mania, “This book is a must-read because it will save lives.” Echoing these sentiments, Dr. Jay Carter, international best selling author of four books on bipolar disorder states, “These Chicks have come up with every rule to save your life as you know it. Listen to what they say!”
Two Bipolar Chicks Guide to Survival: Tips for Living with Bipolar Disorder is an original trade paperback, also available in e-book, from Post Hill Press - on sale April 22.
