Living with Bipolar Disorder – A Memoir of Love and Madness

A Memoir of Love and Madness. Living with bipolar disorder.

After the devastating diagnosis of bipolar disorder, the author wrote a book chronicling her ongoing efforts to come to terms with a disease that, in effect, is a life sentence.

The book recounts her upbringing in a Jewish family, her struggle with bulimia, anorexia and self-mutilation, her attempts at suicide, finding true love and, finally, the 'crazy, unpredictable experience of giving birth to triplets.'

This is neither a self-help book nor a medical guide.  Reading this book will not cure anyone; bipolar disorder is a chronic illness. But, it did help Rahla - as it will countless others - 'to try to understand the rhythm in the cacophony of this condition.'
