BiPower addresses people with mental illness. The goal is for people with a mental health condition to realize the importance of remaining consistent with their drug regimen and preventative care measures to live the life they desire and deserve. I hope to impress upon readers the importance of life, and to celebrate the healing love caregivers provide. The pages of BiPower shares the life's work of one woman and her hope this book will motivate anyone who might be suffering from mental illness to take a step in the right direction, which is a professional evaluation to determine if you have a mental health condition.
This book explicitly walks you through the mind, behavior, and uncertainty experienced due to mental illness, with emphasis on Bipolar Disorder. BiPower explores Bipolar Disorder through the life experiences and mind's eye of Dotty Edwards. This book is a road map that outlines the rough terrain one must travel to challenge the influence your thoughts hold over your choices as you seek help. Dotty's journey unravels the myriad pitfalls that exist when someone is looking for a refuge in the greatest storm one could ever encounter-the mind. She spares no detail by sharing every episode, and each incident that led to her hospitalizations. BiPower shares the everyday reality it takes to reveal how much POWER is available to loosen the grip of any mental illness off your life. Bipolar Disorder causes racing, uncontrollable thoughts that can lead to irrational feelings. On every page, Dotty is proclaiming, “I wrote this book to help you know that you are NOT alone; we just need help.” Suicide is not the answer. Let me tell you why.
This book does not provide medical advice nor a diagnosis.
