Bipolar disorder, also known as manic-depressive illness, is a brain disorder that causes unusual shifts in mood, energy, activity levels and the ability to carry out day-to-day tasks. Symptoms of bipolar disorder are severe - they are different from the normal ups and downs that everyone goes through from time to time. They can result in damaged relationships, poor job or school performance and even suicide. But Bipolar can be treated and people with this illness can lead full and productive lives.

This book is born out of Gabrielle's desire to encourage those poor souls who find themselves sitting in the waiting rooms of psychiatric clinics and hospitals. It is a personal story and it not meant to be a recommendation for any particular treatment . In an easy to read format and fully illustrated it is for those who are going through the worse of Bipolar and it gives an understanding in broad terms to family and friends as to what goes on in Bipolar land. Gabrielle eventually found her way back to a happy life, full of love, hope and laughter. May YOU find your way back to laughter and the life YOU want to live.
