Discover how Maggie became a high school and college cross country track star on a full-ride scholarship when just like a shot at the beginning of a track meet, my own race with the Bipolar Disorder began. Little did she know that the only thing her cross country running speed would help her with was to escape from a maximum security mental institution! Maggie's "lows" were full of anxiety and pain followed by "highs" which seemed to be pure magic. Her loving parents, fearing for her safety, hired bodyguards to try to protect her from not only herself but the predators that surrounded her in her life.
As you enjoy the journey in "Runaway Mind, My Own Race with Bipolar Disorder" you begin to have a clear picture of the actual mania side of Bipolar Disorder instead of the depression side of the Bipolar Disorder as found in most similar books. Runaway Mind is available today at Amazon.com

Living every day with the Bipolar disorder can mean amazing creativity for Maggie who seems to can get so much done with such energy! Then there are projects that never seem to get finished and knowing possibly tomorrow might bring a deep sadness. The side effects of medications may just put a wet blanket on her day with nausea and illness. In each day there is a dark secret in the back of her mind, the knowledge that an episode could happen again, if not for the medication, a bipolar maniac episode that would take away her happiness, family and her life.
At long last when she finally started on the long road to recovery, Maggie discovered that she could relay upon, trust and have faith in her last bodyguard. True love did find Maggie and she can truly say that she married her bodyguard!

Bipolar Disorder, today it is a buzz word in the news and media for right now for over 3 percent of the population suffers from this mental illness whose onset is almost always during the fragile teenage years. The only books you seem to find are dry, clinical accounts of sad, mad, lost people. Not full of exactly encouraging words for a Mom and Dad desperately clutching at straws for their child. Today Maggie Ressse holds true to her vision to change the stigma of Bipolar Disorder and to help families understand what their child is going through and discover hope that there can be a future filled with possibilities.
Her memoirs prove that a person suffering from Bipolar Disorder can go away ... and come back to life again.
The International Bipolar Foundation nominated and approved Maggie Reese to be on their Executive Board and she is the recipient of the 2011 Young Advocate of the Year Award presented by N.A.M.I. of San Diego.
