“… I have been living with bipolar depression for almost 25 years....at the beginning it was like an earthquake inside and in my family ...I was mentally destroyed and my family were shocked....thanks to their patience and the support of my friends, and where I work, I have survived. I got married and have 2 great children and I became a writer. I already wrote 2 poetry books and 3 novels and I am working on the 4th.....the good side of bipolar depression is that it made me appreciate a healthy life more and come to understand the world and people around me better…”
