My friend Julie Fast, who has a blog called http://www.bipolarhappens.wordpress.com, she is a bipolar d/o coach and advocate and she offers treatment plans for BPD, and she has written many books on the subject as well! She is quite amazing! She asked me what is one word I would say to a person who was newly diagnosed with bipolar disorder and my answer is in the mini video 🙂
You rarely hear the words bipolar disorder and hope spoken together. Lets hope (!) that treatment, education and other services needed to live well with this awful illness make the use of bipolar disorder and hope in a single thought a common occurrence!
