Check out the latest review of the book from Caz at Invisibly Me:


Phyllis Engle

Phyllis blogs at Color Me Bipolar, and shared her experience with bipolar II disorder:

“The mood swings are very difficult to deal with. They often leave me feeling like I am going crazy.  One moment I am fine, then at the drop of a hat, I am depressed or hypomanic or even both!  I think the thing that is most difficult for me to live with is the horrible depths of depression that I go through.”


Wonderfull Creature

Wonderfull Creature, who blogs at Mental Illness Warrior, shared her experience with borderline personality disorder:

“I’m either all the way having a crisis or all the way to the other side pretending and acting like everything is fine…  I struggle with feeling like I’m not real and don’t know who I am, and sometimes I feel like I finally found who I am just to lose that again, so I constantly don’t know where I fit into this world.”
