Crazy...Or Something Else Entirely: A (Mostly) Secret Journey With Bipolar Disorder (Paperback)
According to the National Institute of Health, bipolar disorder affects approximately 5.7 million adults in America. Jillian is one of them.
Jillian chronicles her journey to date living with bipolar disorder in a heartfelt and humorous memoir. She explores how her mental illness affected her life in several key stages of development. Jillian also gives way to the voices surrounding her to how her bipolar disorder has played a role in their lives.
Although it delves into mental illness, this memoir doesn't come across as clinical or too dark. It touches on Jillian's tragedy while keeping an optimistic tone throughout.
Jillian's memoir is a great read for those affected by a mental illness-whether they're the ones living with it or a caregiver for someone else. General readers interested in psychology will find her decisive voice and lush storytelling the perfect home for her thoughts about living with bipolar disorder.
