While six months pregnant with her first child, the author was hospitalized for a pain that kept her awake for seven consecutive days and nights. A diagnosis of bipolar disorder followed. Finally, after forty-two years, she triumphantly overcame her psychosis. Tilly Dunn tells you her inside story and the tools she discovered to conquer all her challenges. Her life of joy and purpose is what she wants to share with you today.
What an incredible journey this book takes you through. I could almost feel the pain that would be brought about by these manic episodes and I have a deep felt respect that she was able to pull out of it. Talk about determination and the power of the mind and will! I also have lots of respect for Rob in sticking by Tilly through it all. It’s certainly not easy to be with someone who is diagnosed with bipolar disorder or borderline personality disorder, and in most cases, the relationship doesn’t survive.Dr. Don Boulay, Amazon.com review
Coming from myself who holds a Ph.D in Applied Sciences, I am quite familiar with chemical imbalances and I can surely understand and appreciate the pain she endured and how those around her could feel helpless in these moments of trouble.
The book takes you through the years leading up to today, which I think is crucial in understanding that there was no real reason for the manic moments. Like Tilly, you must want the change bad enough to make the necessary steps towards it. I found this book to be an incredibly good read and I would highly recommend it either as a foundation to help in overcoming this condition or to broaden your knowledge through someone else’s eyes. Thank you, Tilly, for painstakingly telling us your story and I know you’ll stay true to your path.
My life is full of joy and purpose, and I want to inspire and motivate you to feel the same. I am a retired Registered Nurse, specialized in home Palliative Care. After all, I was very familiar with feelings on death. There is nothing to fear, and I want to be of service to you. You can be as rich as you like but without your health, you have nothing. I overcame my mental and physical challenges and you can do the same. It is possible to shift the mental inner track to a positive mind set.
