When the author's mother was diagnosed with bipolar disorder, the response was shock and confusion. What did it mean to be bipolar? How would it affect her mother and the members of her family? Grett became frustrated with her mother because she didn't understand the disease or her mother's behavior and believed that she could be normal if she just tried harder. The diagnosis of bipolar disorder weighs heavily on those millions of Americans who suffer the illness. But what about their families? More specifically, what about the children whose parents are diagnosed. My Mother's Bipolar, So What Am I? reveals the emotional, physical and mental toll this complicated disease takes on the children. Author Angela Grett sheds light on their common experiences, as well as coping mechanisms, to help adult children begin to heal through understanding and perhaps find a reason to be hopeful.
