Author Lizabeth D. Schuch discusses her long battle with bipolar disorder.

Until she experienced her first manic episode at the age of seventeen, Schuch had little knowledge of mental illness. From that point on, her life would never be the same.

In her memoir, she discusses her 25 years of experience with bipolar disorder, sharing the wisdom attained to break the hold of stigma, shame, and fear surrounding this illness. Schuch reveals the full reality of what living with bipolar looks like. She shares the truth, from its manic and depressive extremes to the life lessons of understanding and maturity necessary to live well in recovery.
