I’m looking for people to read and write a review of my new book Making Sense of Psychiatric Diagnosis. If you’re interested, please email me at mentalhealthathome at gmail dot com.
For more details on the book, please visit the Making Sense of Psychiatric Diagnosis page.
Below are today’s featured contributors.
Katie blogs on Bipolar Brave. I was very happy to have her as a last-minute addition to the contributor group. I suggested she write about her experience of being psychotic while manic, as this is a less commonly recognized aspect of bipolar. Here’s an excerpt:
“While I have a strong faith in the God of the Bible, I was particularly prone to developing a type of delusion, especially in my bipolar manic psychotic state, that related to God or something in the Bible. At these times, I was overcome with the sense that I was a person from the scriptures, or that I encountered angels and demons in human form.”
The other Katie in the book is from Let’s Talk Anxiety Disorders and Depression. She shared her experiences with OCD and health anxiety. Here’s an excerpt:
“The pain is real.The symptoms are real.Nothing has happened yet… but… what about the next time?What if this is different?You search on Google, you look for reassurance from friends and family (but not so much because they are tired of it).You see a therapist.You suffer and you struggle every day to appear normal, when inside you feel like you are dying.”
You can also read a new review by Meg Kimball on Goodreads.
