The questions that surround bipolar disease are many: wondering if a loved one has it, how to handle the social stigma of mental illness, what treatment options are available—these are all likely, and realistic, concerns of anyone near the disease and these are precisely the questions that new book, “An Insider’s View of Bipolar Disease: How to Recognize the Symptoms, Understand the Treatments and Solve the Challenges to Life, Relationships and Career” by Dr. Paul Golden hopes to answer for readers. |
Golden writes from a unique perspective as he himself, in fact, lives with bipolar disease.
“I want to show that people with Bipolar Illness and other ‘mental illnesses’, as the press likes to describe them, can be productive members of society in any field. I am concerned that the stigma of mental disorders is increasing because of the awful frequency of tragedies such as in our schools and workplaces,” said Paul. “I see this as in part due to the lagging availability of psychological care compared to other disease processes in our health care system.”
Golden first noticed symptoms while dealing with a mysterious bout of depression during medical school. The years to follow were a mental roller coaster ride through his medical internship, residency and practice. In his next book, “The Bipolar Physician – A Story of Struggle, Survival and Success”, due out in the next few months, Golden details the sometimes hilarious and sometimes tragic tales.
