Since I have family members with bipolar disorder, I was excited to finally have a handbook for the disease. Take Charge of Bipolar Disorder gives a thorough explanation of the disease. It takes the reader from pre-diagnosis straight through to living with the disease. It’s a comprehensive guide for the individual struggling with bipolar disorder, and it also gives valuable information for those living with or assisting the bipolar person.

Fast and Preston walk us through a four-step plan to manage the illness and to help develop stability. The plan covers medications and supplements needed to treat the disease. Many people who are diagnosed with bipolar disorder find it difficult to accept that they will need to be on medication for the rest of their lives, and they need to look for alternative ways to manage the disease. Most medical experts recommend that medication or combinations of medications are necessary to gain stability with bipolar disorder. There are many lifestyle changes necessary to help manage the symptoms of the disease, including proper diet, proper sleep, and exposure to sunlight. Behavioral changes are needed to help pinpoint bipolar triggers and teach the bipolar person how to explain to their loved ones how to help them when they’re suffering from a bipolar episode.

Sometimes the most difficult part for a person suffering from bipolar disorder is simply asking for help—not only from the right person but in the right way and at the right time. Fast and Preston cover this topic, walking the reader through a step-by-step process to make this important advance in dealing with their condition.

Take Charge of Bipolar Disorder is a very practical book that comprehensively covers all aspects that someone with bipolar disorder struggles with. Bipolar disorder is often thought to be a shameful mental condition, but under proper treatment and care, a person with bipolar disorder can live a normal productive life.

I thoroughly enjoyed the book and plan to share a copy with those who work with our family members who have bipolar disorder.
