Is the Swing High or Low?: Living with Someone with Bipolar Disorder
By: Wilma Cotten
About the Book
In Is the Swing High or Low? author Wilma Cotten reveals the struggles she had with her bipolar daughter Andrea, who succumbed to the evils of drugs as a method of self-care.
While trying to be a supportive and loving mother, Wilma struggled for years to find some solution to her daughter’s problems. Counseling, medication, rehab—nothing seemed to help. So she did what any mother would do—she loved her unconditionally anyway.
It is important to remember that mental health issues should be taken seriously and treated as illnesses, much like diabetes or heart disease. Is the Swing High or Low? will help us open our eyes to symptoms early on so we can be proactive in obtaining the best possible treatment plan for our loved ones.
