Publisher's Summary

An uncut, raw and gripping story of one woman's life struggle with the extreme highs and lows of Bipolar Disorder I. The denial of her diagnosis and the eventual acceptance of her medication and disease. She takes us from her innocence as a child to her adult criminal lifestyle, which led to a subsequent 70 month federal prison sentence for Securities Fraud. A tale so unbelievable and elements so disturbing, you would swear you were listening to fiction.

A wakeup call for all of us

A good listen after listening to (An Unquiet Mind by Dr. Jamison). In this book Christine tells it just how it is. She explains how mania ruind her life by making her prone to irrational thinking, and making her have a wild life that included: over spending, buying expensive clothes, cars, houses, maxing out credit cards, and even fraud, theivary, stealing money from clients credit cards, and identity theft. She was diagnosed many times by doctors and was prescribed with Lithium, which is very effective for bipolar by the way, but she didn't take them because she felt good after a while and was gaining weight.

Mental illness is just like any other illness, it is hard, we need the support of the people around us, those who love us and care for us. And we should always stick to the advice of a doctor we trust, and take the medication as prescribed.
