Summary

A BBC Radio 4 drama by Louise Ramsden, based on Seaneen Molloy's blog 'The Secret Life of a Manic Depressive', her account of learning to live and love with bipolar disorder. Originally broadcast as the 'Afternoon Play' on 8 May 2009. Facing life as a newly-diagnosed manic depressive, Seaneen fears that Rob has become more nurse than boyfriend, and begins to wonder if the only way to save a brilliant relationship is to leave it. The play charts her determination to cope with her illness and to live life independently. Starring Séainín Brennan as Seaneen and Joseph Kloska as Rob.

Also featured in the cast are Janice Acquah, Toni Midlane and Philip Fox. Comments from the blog are read by members of the Radio Drama Company. Except for Seaneen and Rob, all the characters are fictional. 'The Do's and Don'ts for the Mentally Interesting' was directed by Fiona Kelcher.
