For anybody familiar with the condition known as bipolar 2, you will probably know how difficult and distressing the condition can be. Bipolar 2 Disorder is a condition most commonly characterized by at least one hypomanic (happy) episode and one major depressive episode. Firstly, what is bipolar 2? Bipolar 2 disorder, is a type of mental illness that is very similar to bipolar 1 disorder. Typically, people suffering from bipolar 2 will experience severe mood swings and changes, alternating from periods of extreme lows, to highs over time. The only real difference between bipolar 1 and 2 is that in bipolar 2, the person suffering from the condition will never experience what is known as full on "mania" type highs. The less-intense elevated moods in bipolar 2 disorder are known as "hypomania" or hypomanic episodes. Generally, people suffering from bipolar 2 disorder will have, or will experience at least one hypomanic episode in their life. Unfortunately, people suffering from this condition also suffer spells of depression, sometimes quite severe. This is where the term "manic depression" comes from. 1. Language: English.

On August 20, 2015, after enduring years of intense workplace stress, bullying, and harassment, Tracey Maxfield, a hard-working, highly skilled, caring, and compassionate nurse, hurtled headfirst down into an abyss of darkness, despair, pain, and sorrow (she affectionately named, the rabbit hole). Despite being no stranger to depression, having made its acquaintance many times throughout the years, nothing could have prepared her for what was about to happen to her life, her heart, her soul, her very being. Escaping the Rabbit Hole: My Journey Through Depression is a brutally honest, raw, and vivid description of what life is like after experiencing an acute depressive episode. Through a series of blog posts, journal entries, and a letter to self, Tracey shares the excruciating emotional and physical pain she endured, the never-ending feelings of hopelessness, worthlessness, and sadness which left her inert and unable to function, and her ongoing battle against DBS (death by suicide). Every single day, she had to make a choice: to fight the battle to live, or to surrender and die. She chose to live, and so began her most difficult and challenging life journey yet: to try and escape the rabbit hole. This book is a must hear for anyone living with depression or caring for someone with depression, and for anyone who wants to know more about this greatly misunderstood mental health illness. Tracey tells us that words can be powerful and healing, and with time, it is possible to emerge from the rabbit hole of darkness and despair and reclaim your life. This is a story of courage, of hope, and of never giving up. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Tracey Maxfield. Audio sample: http://samples.audible.de/bk/acx0/118553/bk_acx0_118553_sample.mp3.

A chance visit from Andre North's mother and her high school sweetheart sends the young bipolar patient on a rambling streak through the history of his bipolar illness in this autobiographical odyssey of mania and depression. The first memories stirred up include Andre's untimely birth to a drunk and a depressive in front of an audience of doctors who hardly seem to care that the young child is dying from oxygen deprivation. Then Andre grows up in the face of drunken parties and suicide attempts, living face-to-face with the poisonous lives of parents gone wrong. Enter bipolar disorder. Now a young man, Andre winds up at university, writing furiously while in the throes of inspiration until he meets the teaching assistant who tricks him into going to the mental hospital. Stuck behind shatter-proof glass for three months, Andre finally meets his match: the dreaded lithium. All it takes is one salty pill to transform the vibrant Adonis into a tranquilized zombie. Determined to get his life and mind back, Andre travels cross-country to face the real demon lurking behind his illness - the stigma of manic depression itself. A Personal Note from the Author: This memoir blends the first 10 years of my experiences with bipolar disorder following the initial diagnosis in 1998 with a personal story of self-discovery and family revelation. I know the emotions around facing a diagnosis of mental illness are sometimes more challenging than learning that you have a fatal disease. I used to torture myself with questions like, "What have I done bring this down upon myself?" I often felt like crying when I saw what I perceived to be normal, healthy people living out their daily lives. That's why I've released this memoir. It was written during an actual manic episode and has all the tell-tale signs of the disorder in its diction and grammar. I know that listening to this audiobook will help heal the pain, ease the frustration, and give hope t 1. Language: English. Narrator: Andrew Broussard.

This book presents a new perspective on so far neglected important areas in clinical sport psychology and sport psychiatry. The authors use the results of an empirical qualitative and transcultural study, to evaluate post psychological traumata of physical injury in sport. An ethnically homogenous sample (n=7) of Chinese athletes suffering from sport injury and achievement stagnation identified by key informants was included.

Case 6 suffered from Adjustment Disorders with Anxiety and Depression, and Heart Spleen Deficiency Depression and Pain, case 7 had a history of Adjustment Disorders with Anxiety and Depression and Dysthymic Disorder, Heart Spleen Deficiency Depression. The book speaks to professionals in sport sciences, sociology, psychology and medicine. It specifically is of relevance for coaches, athletes, sport managers, mental training counselors and to anyone who is interested in serious sport practice.
