My Bipolar Mind – You Are Not Alone


My Bipolar Mind – You Are Not Alone

My Bipolar Mind is Samantha’s riveting journey through mental illness and addiction. It all started as a blog with nothing more than the hope of letting others know that they are not alone as she has often felt while climbing the highs and plummeting to the lows of bipolar disorder.

My Bipolar Mind is a compelling journey into the depths of the bipolar soul. Samantha Steiner’s raw, heartfelt writing permeates this powerful memoir. My Bipolar Mind will bring comfort to many people who are feeling down. Samantha’s experience will help readers feel less alone when darkness takes over their mood. She describes some of her key coping tools such as mood tracking and journal writing. (When she pursues her dream to write professionally, her stint as an unappreciated ghostwriter is fascinating!)

Anyone who struggles with mental illness, either directly or as a caregiver, will gain insight from Samantha’s story. Despite the lows and highs that mental illness brings her, Samantha’s perseverance encourages us to keep going and, most importantly, to reach out for help when life seems hopeless. My Bipolar Mind is a truly worthwhile read.
