In "Bipolar Bits" Sylvia Meier has given her readers a firsthand account of living with Bipolar Disorder - from the inside out. Her book reads like a personal journal of "bits" and pieces of what it's like to never know what each day will bring; the mood swings, the unpredictability and the struggle just to feel as close to "normal" as possible. If there is someone in your life suffering from BPD this book should be considered a "Must Read." Even for those with no prior experience with Bipolar Disorder, there is so much to be learned from this book about resilience, courage and the incredible generosity of the human heart.

5.0 out of 5 stars Living with bipolar 19 Sept. 2013
By terry clark - Published on Amazon.com

I gave this book a five star rating. I learned a lot about being bipolar. My brother had this illness and it allowed me to be able to understand more about how he felt. Looking forward to other books from this author. Excellent book!

2.0 out of 5 stars Set up like a Diary of random entries 15 Nov. 2013
By Yvonne Baugh - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
Can't really rate this - as I started reading it but didn't like the fact that it was sent up like a diary of sorts. Endless "Entries" that are random and jump around. My Bipolar World was much better and more of what I was looking for.

5.0 out of 5 stars Now I Really Understand 26 May 2013
By Elartica - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition
I absolutely loved reading "Bipolar Bits". Within the first couple of pages I was captured by Sylvia Meier's (the author)level of honesty. I have several friends who have personal battles with depression and anxiety. The more I read, the more compassion began to well up inside of me for my friends. So many of the things that Sylvia shares in this book I see scattered throughout the lives of my friends, mood swings, medication changes, discouragement, counseling, the will to live and the deep a dark place of attempting to end being alive.

If you know of someone close to you who is dealing with depression, this book is well worth reading. I truly have a greater understanding of what my friends are dealing with.

If I had to put my finger on one thing that spoke to me the most is how Sylvia shares that acceptance is a huge part of living with being Bipolar. She tells of how unpredictable the medication changes can be and how you have to endure the process of getting back to a normal state. She even addresses what being normal means when you are bipolar, basically just accepting that you are who you were created to be means that you are normal.

It's all in this book, things like feeling really good about life and at the same time being fearful to take on responsibilities because you know that the depression and anxiety are unpredictable and may set in at any moment.

She even gives a brief mention of what happens with her sex drive, desire to accomplish things, sleeping patterns and her eating habits when she is either depressed or manic.

If you want to understand what someone who lives with being Bipolar is enduring, you're going to love this book, as I did.

5.0 out of 5 stars Read this if you know or have ever wondered how it feels to have a mental illness 7 Jun. 2013
By annebrookstone - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition
Bipolar Bits:
Manic Madness To Depressive Depths written by Sylvia Meier is the second book in the Living Bipolar Series.

When reading this book I felt like I was peeking into Sylvia's diary, and in many ways I was. This book provides a look into the mind of a very courageous woman, mother, and talented writer who has struggled with Bipolar Syndrome since she was thirteen years old.

She shows us who have never experienced what it is to live Bipolar exactly how she feels and thinks and how she deals with how she thinks and feels. As Bipolar Disorder is a Mental Illness it's her state of mind that is so important and she bravely opens up herself and mentally bleeds throughout the pages to show us her struggles as a mother, her struggles with medication - and her her suicide attempt, a moment that she describes as both the lowest and highest point of her life.

At times, especially in the beginning, she shares with us beautiful dark poetry, while at other times her writings feel more like very personal blog posts.

I would recommend this book to anyone dealing with any type of mental health disorders, because sometimes when you have been struggling alone for a long time it can really help to read how others with similar problems feel and think, and how they overcome these extreme challenges. Sylvia especially wants anyone struggling with Bipolar Disorder or any similar Mental Illness that you are not alone!

This book is also great for people who have no real experience with mental health problems because it shows that people with these problems are good people genuinely struggling and that they are not the stereotyped stigmas that you often see on TV.

For those of you who love someone who is living Bipolar, reading this should help you understand just how difficult life can be, and it may help open your compassion a little bit more, if you have struggled with this due to not truly understanding the severity of this illness.

I also highly recommend Living Bipolar: Learning to live with bipolar disorder, her first book in this series.

5.0 out of 5 stars Sylvia Meier puts you right into her mind as she describes what this illness does 19 Jun. 2013
By Don Schenk - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition
A fascinating read through the mind, feelings, and actions of a woman who suffers the unreasonable ups and downs of BPD. Author, Sylvia Meier, is a mother of 5 who has to maintain a normal life for her family while the natural chemistry of her brain takes her from devastating depression to the heights of manic energy.

She journals what it is like to experience the mood swings of this mental illness. No amount of "right thinking" will prevent the emotional crash of depression or the exhilaration of mania. If you are curious about how it feels to have BPD, or if anyone you know has the illness, in Bipolar Bits, Sylvia Meier puts you right into her mind as she describes what this illness does. This book is an eye opener.
