Book Review Mothering Through Bipolar


CoverTitle: Mothering Through Bipolar

Author: Rebecca Moore

Genre: Memoir

Rating: A+

Mothering Through Bipolar is Rebecca’s journey of living with Bipolar Disorder while raising a family of seven children. She takes her readers on an adventure through depression, mania, legal issues, relationship problems and other difficulties. Rebecca offers her readers encouragement, comfort and support; always with a message of hope.

It’s hard to put into words how much I enjoyed this book. Every mother, suffering from bipolar disorder or not, should read it. In the first place it’s a book about being a woman, being a mother, about getting through depression, mania, broken relationships, about picking up one’s life when one has been kicked down over and over again. The book is very personal, and I almost felt an intruder for reading. It obviously took a lot of courage for the author to write this down, which I deeply appreciate. If you know a friend or family member who suffers from bipolar disorder, or you suffer from it yourself, I highly recommend this book.
