This fully revised and updated second edition of the bestselling Loving Someone with Bipolar Disorder discusses all aspects of readers’ relationships with bipolar partners: work, money, sex, medications and their side effects, therapeutic treatments, and more.

Also called manic depressive disorder, bipolar disorder can cause extreme mood swings, and people who suffer from this disorder can alternate between manic and depressed behavior without much warning.

Loving Someone with Bipolar Disorder, Second Edition, builds on the practical advice offered in the original book by offering critical new information on the medications that are sometimes prescribed to manage bipolar disorder symptoms. Readers will learn how their partners may be affected by medication and what side effects they can expect. Because readers serve an important role in managing and monitoring their partner’s medication, this information is essential to supporting the treatment of people with bipolar disorder.

Readers discover how to better communicate with their partners, manage their own emotional responses to partners’ mood swings, and deal with problems relating to work, money, and sex. Although this guide is written for the romantic partner of an individual with bipolar disorder, thousands of friends and family members of people with bipolar disorder have also found its realistic and practical advice endlessly useful.
