Julie Fast: The Dangers of Loving Euphoric Mania

Julie takes the reader on a journey from her many past euphoric manias into her life today where the mania is better managed. Julie understands the love we have for the mania that feels good, but also knows that what goes up must come down and no longer wants to live a life filled with mood swings. It may be that you’re new to bipolar disorder management and want to have a way to keep the mania from taking over your life and putting you in the hospital or... maybe you know deep inside that you like your euphoric mania a little too much and want to make a change. Family members, partners and health care professionals will enjoy the inside view of what it’s like to feel so happy you can’t control your behavior and then see what it actually looks like on the inside when a person lets the mania get out of control. Julie has lived with mania for over 25 years and knows that having to stop something that feels so good in the moment is difficult, but she’s here to help you see that it’s possible.
