You are about to discover proven steps and strategies to properly support and care for a loved one with bipolar disorder. More often than not, people who have a loved one diagnosed with bipolar disorder wonder what to expect and how they should show their love and support. It can be very difficult for those who are diagnosed with bipolar disorder to accept their condition. In the same way, it can also be overwhelming, and at the same time frightening, for the family and friends of people with bipolar disorder, especially if they do not know the appropriate ways to support and deal with the condition.
Bipolar disorder, which is also known as manic depression, is a type of mental or psychiatric disorder that is marked by extreme mood swings. Although there have continuously been studies on the condition, its ultimate cause remains unknown. On the other hand, some of the presumed contributors to bipolar disorder include brain chemistry, genetics, and life events.
All people experience various events in their daily lives; however, people who are suffering due to bipolar disorder experience persistent episodes of life's "ups and downs" that affect their ability to function as an individual. Bipolar disorder can affect one's thoughts, moods, and behavior.
In recent studies, mental health experts estimate that over two million adults are afflicted with bipolar disorder. Thus, if you or a loved one has been diagnosed with this condition, the most important step towards discarding uncertainty is education. Educating yourself about bipolar disorder can help you deal with a loved one who has been inflicted with this unfortunate condition.

"Great book for patients and loved ones"
This is short, up to date, authoritative, and comprehensive. I was diagnosed with BP and and have been taking meds for more than 15 years. But I am still struggling, as is my spouse. This clear book in layman' terms provides a gateway to a better life. Thank you.
If you have little to no idea about bipolar disorder, this books is a useful tool, where it excels in talking about a broad spectrum of related items, it lacks substance in detailing the topics. Was worth the 4$ to get a foundation to look up on my drive home.
Narration was dry, but as to be expected from a book as such. I applaud the narrator for being able to fluently speak the medicinal garble ;)
