Author Angela Grett joins Yvonne Perry on Writers in the Sky Podcast July 27, 2007 to discuss her book MY MOTHER’S BIPOLAR, SO WHAT AM I?
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. The book sheds light on common experiences, as well as coping mechanisms, to help adult children begin to heal through understanding and perhaps find a reason to be hopeful.
Angela Grett is a highly successful author, consultant and speaker, eager to help others by telling her own story. She brings to her writing and speaking a personal knowledge and experience of this illness after being raised by a mother having bipolar disorder. Her experiences have earned her the self-designated degree of CBP: Child of a Bipolar Parent. She is traveling and speaking for NAMI (National Alliance on Mental Illness).
While authoring her book, she learned the power of writing from the heart. “Our greatest creativity comes when we stop thinking and simply feel,” says Angela.
