Sunday Soul Read Find : Moorestorms: A Guide For The Bipolar Parent by Rebecca Moore


I was diagnosed with bipolar disorder when I was 33 years old. Although I lived my entire life with mood swings, it was not until then that the doctors' got it right. Before then I was diagnosed with Major Depressive Disorder, which made sense because I only sought help when I was depressed. Since my diagnosis, I made it my mission to reach out to others' who are coping with bipolar and depression. I have ran my own blog for over 3 years, wrote "Moorestorms A Guide for the Bipolar Parent" and am doing advocacy work within my own community. I also am on the Consumer Advisory Council for the International Bipolar Foundation and run my own bipolar support group. I am also married to my high school sweetheart and we have 7 children together.

Moorestorms: A Guide For The Bipolar Parent is a well-written. It provides a no-nonsense understanding of the roots of Bipolar, this easy-to-read narrative exhibits the ups and downs of diagnosis, discusses treatment options, and offers valuable coping strategies.
It is written by a writer who I truly admire, her way with words as much as her generous drive to help others. I highly recommended reading this book. It’s for anyone who has a loved one in their life grappling with bipolar disorder. This is a must read for any parent who deals with bipolar disorder is any way, whether it’s for you or for someone you love. Moorestorms: A Guide For The Bipolar Parent will likely sound like a familiar tale!

I believe everyone who has someone in their life with these symptoms should read this book. Rebecca has shared a wealth of information including interactions with people uneducated about this disorder, what one may expect now and in the future, legal issues and much more. She has also candidly displayed her life for all to see, which I find to be very brave.

Ms. Moore's moving book "Moorestorms: A Guide For The Bipolar Parent" was a fast, moving read filled with tons of helpful information. Reading "Moorestorms" was like sitting down with a good friend to learn about what it's like to live with this illness, and how to live a better life in spite of its damage. As Moore is the parent of seven children, she has learned an enormous deal about how to be the best parent she can be. I wish I had this book a long time ago when my two kids were young, as it would have made me feel less alone with my struggles and it would have given me practical pointers as well. The author bares her soul throughout the book. She never condescends to the reader like some "bipolar experts" do in their tomes. I highly recommend it
