Meanwhile I read Mood Mapping and did a lot of the exercises in the book.
You will find in the book exercises that work to help you discover what mood you are in, and strategies of how to navigate between your various moods.
This book is full of ideas and techniques, that have yet to be discovered by mental health professionals. This has occurred because the author Liz Miller is a sufferer herself, and by sheer bloody persistence, has worked a way out of her mental disease. She has written up the strategies that she used to get well, and uses to keep well. So this is her gift to us to help us on our path from mental illness, to being able to function in life, and be relatively happy for more of the time. Liz has successfully used these strategies to go from being sectioned under the Mental Health act, to being voted Mind Personality of the year.
I would encourage everybody to read this book, whether you suffer from mental health problems or not.
For sufferers it will help you get strategies that will help you cope with life, and for those fortunate enough not to suffer, will give a greater understanding to yourself of how you work emotionally.
Jung and Freud never did much for me, but the ideas set out in the book do. Her ideas of Mood Mapping allow me to plot out my http://www.amazon.co.uk/review/edit-review/ref=cm_cr_error?_encoding=UTF8&asin=1905744455&reviewID=R34RSWOLQAMH2Fmoods, in a way I never have done before. This has the knock on effect of me being able to behave appropriately whatever the situation. Knowing what state I am in, I can sort of nudge myself towards the state I would like to be in. For this customer, Mood Mapping will be much read, much loved, and much used.
She sets out a book as a self help course, and suggests we should plot our moods over 14 days, Well it will take me longer than that, and I'll find a way that suits me, using her method as my starting point. I can't be bothered to go out and buy a spiral notebook as she suggests, (p32) I'll use bits of A4 paper stuck to the wall around the house, to be filed as and when, but that's me not her.Read more ›
She comes from a medical family, I believe, and would have preferred to train as an artist. However, her parents pressurised her into medicine, although she has a first degree in Divinity.
She was eventually sectioned and admitted to the Royal Bethlem & Maudsley unit for health workers, when psychiatrists diagnosed her with bipolar disorder - a diagnosis that I believe was erroneous.
Through all her trials and tribulations Liz Miller has continued to practise patient centred medicine of the highest quality - I know this because I met her when I edited my one and only edition of Pendulum, the newsletter of the then MDF, know known as the Bipolar Association, I believe. She was a constant voice of sanity and reassurance on the phone as I struggled to cope with service users, employees of the MDF, and psychiatrists - some of whom sounded disconcertingly like their patients.
I consider myself privileged to know her. I've had her book for weeks and already it is dog-eared - leant to I do not know which friend.
Mike Sharples, professer of learning technology or something at Nottingham, once told me that many writers have manic depression. Liz is one who has been through the mill and emerged triumphant. Every writer in the world should buy this book.
And so should every politician.
