Summary
In The Other Depression, Grieco and Edwards help people understand what life is like for those afflicted with bipolar disorder, what conditions seem to exacerbate it, and how it is diagnosed. Their discussion includes genetic signatures, environmental stresses, and the underpinnings of this disease, along with how it alters the functioning of the brain and how it can be treated. Separate chapters are dedicated to different populations, such as children, adolescents, and the elderly. The authors also introduce resources available to people with bipolar disorder and their families and suggest strategies for coping and getting on with life. Inserted generously throughout the book are case studies and examples of people who have suffered with bipolar disorder, sometimes for decades, before being properly diagnosed. Through these clinical examples, readers come to recognize the effects of the illness and understand treatment options that can provide hope and peace of mind to sufferers and their loved ones
