Subject: ME discusses the author’s life and that she was unknowingly living with bipolar disease. She was finally diagnosed when she was about 55. Her family life was pretty difficult to bear—her mother was an entertainer which, combined with alcoholism, made home life nearly impossible. With all of the author’s suicidal thoughts and attempts, it is a miracle that she made it through to adulthood.
There are so many people in this world who are suffering from bipolar disease and they don't know there is a solution and that their life can become almost "normal." The author hopes that readers take away the fact that there is a solution to the suicidal thoughts—and living with bipolar disease is possible. Life can become happy and comfortable.
