Kurzbeschreibung

"The author lures us into her Bipolar world by injecting humor into the serious subject of mental illness. She acts as a tour guide and takes the reader on her manic journey and then steers us straight into the abyss of her depression." --Diane Urban, PhD, NYS Licensed Psychologist, Adjunct Professor at Manhattan College and Westchester Community College, SUNY

"MY KIND OF CRAZY is an important contribution which sheds light on the often hidden world of mental illness. The line between reality and psychosis is impossible to comprehend unless one has seen the world from both perspectives. The author unlocks the door to a locked psychiatric facility and allows the reader cross the threshold. The story is further enhanced by glimpses of her experience through the eyes of her husband and son." --William M. Dince, Phd, NYS Clinical Psychologist and Clinical Neuropsychologist

Über den Autor und weitere Mitwirkende

I have a story to tell. We all do. Mine is a bit on the crazy side. You see, I am bipolar. I've come out of the crazy closet in order to help others suffering in silence. There is hope and help out there. After a suicide attempt, I am privileged to have a second chance on life and share my personal triumph over bipolar disorder. My mental illness no longer defines me--I define it. Since my suicide attempt, I have not had an episode in over seven years. I now volunteer some time in the same psychiatric hospital where I was a patient many times over. I am also a guest speaker for mental health organizations such as the DBSA (Depression Bipolar Support Alliance). I've helped raise awareness and money for NAMI (National Alliance for Mental Illness) and for Silver Hill Hospital's Scholarship Fund. In addition, psychology professors are incorporating my book into their lesson plans. I share my personal account of living with mental illness in order to move the student from studying mental illness in the clinical sense to understanding it on a more compassionate level.

HASH(0x95bd20f0) von 5 Sternen My kind of Crazy 24. März 2009
Von Hanne in Tennessee - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch
I found this book very informative and moving. I have a daughter living and suffering with a bipolar disorder and see a lot of similarities. She also is writing a book about her life and struggle with this desease. And her experiences are not pretty at times. Hopefully she will have the courage to have it published for other people to see how important it is to get out into the open the stigma associated with mental illness.

HASH(0x958926a8) von 5 Sternen Moving journey inspires Hope 22. Mai 2009
Von Linsu C. Zimmer - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch
A roller-coaster ride of emotion, only in this way can one truly feel the sensation of being "crazy". This tale of living through and evolving via bipolar disorder brings the reader full circle. Like it or not, we are all emotionally and mentally challenged, perhaps this how the human experience plays out. I was inspired by her courage to boldly go where she had not gone before, ECT. Understanding on a deep level, we all hit the bottom and only then are willing to try something that is outside our typical level of bravery. Humans we all are, unique and genius in our own way. From this story I was infused with the power of love, humor and the spirit's unwavering desire to continue on. Bravo and much gratitude for sharing your story and remaining here to tell it!!!!

HASH(0x95bd2c54) von 5 Sternen Everyone's Kind of Crazy 20. Juli 2009
Von Love2Fress - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch
Janine Crowley Haynes has written a book that I wish I had 30 years ago when a family member was diagnosed as bi-polar (then called manic-depressive.) It's an informative and interesting book but also told with a sense of humor and a light touch. We're all a little crazy in our own way and Janine lets us know it's ok. Not only does she accept who she is but she honors it and I honor her too. It's a quick and amazing read, I read the whole book in one night and spent the next night reading it again. Congratulations to the author, a person I admire and adore without hesitation.

Von Leslie E. Gustafson - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch
BRAVO to the Author for her courage in letting us inside of her most intimate thoughts and details of her life and illness. Her endearing sense of humor allows the reader to navigate through the "tremendous highs and excrutiating lows" of living with Bipolar Disorder. It captivated me and I highly recommend it. A very worthwhile read!!!
