Read full description of the books Poetry and Short Stories by a Bipolar Girl:This book was written by a young woman with bipolar disorder, who wrote poems and short stories both in her manic and depressed states.
It's meant to shed some light on bipolar disorder and depression for those who don't suffer from those things, know someone who does or just want to understand what goes through the mind of someone with mental illness.
It's also meant to show those who go through the same things that they aren't alone.
And while doing all of that, it's also just a fun book to read.

Melissa Burke (24) lives in Massachusetts with her family and her pets - a cat, a dog, a hamster and five chickens (4 hens + 1 rooster). She is a shift captain at her local animal shelter and a volunteer in the domestics (farm) area at Buttonwood Park Zoo. Melissa likes to take care of animals, watch movies/TV shows, knit, read and write.
Melissa has been living with depression/bipolar disorder, ADHD, an on-and-off eating disorder, OCD and anxiety for most of her life, and now PTSD as well. With some of her books, she tries to shine light on mental illness to show not only what life is like for people suffering from it, but also to show that people with mental illness aren't crazy. She establishes these ideas most prominently in her third book "The Darkness And The Light" which consists of personal journal entries from 2010-2014 with a few poems in between. She's helped a few people so far and hopes to continue to do so. Though she is on the path to recovery, it's a slow and bumpy process with a few relapses along the way. But she tells people to stay strong and never lose hope, and she's trying to do so with herself.
Messages are always welcome if people need to talk, rant, or just need someone to listen.
Her 4 books are available in paperback and kindle editions. You can go here to buy an e-book edition of It's Just One Of Those Days.
You can add her as a friend and/or ask her questions!
