About the Book

“Two struggling mothers, each with a son diagnosed with bipolar disorder, brought together through one psychologist. Join them all as they share their struggles and their triumphs in raising and treating David and Nick. From the mother’s first gut instincts during early childhood, to a diagnosis and treatment, to adulthood; these are the journeys of two boys through the eyes of their mothers and the clinical impressions of their psychologist. Their writings were a way to reprocess their interactions with David and Nick to get a better understanding of what they pined through without having guidelines, consistent advice, or a clear goal other than improving quality of life. They share the intensity of everyday moments and their deep, consuming emotions that have challenged their ability to empathize.”
