Interrupted with Bipolar

by Shae Therrien

Book Image Not Available Book Image Not Available
Overview
After eight hospitalizations for bipolar depression since his first admission in 1998, and a total of more than 150 electroconvulsive therapy treatments, Shae Therrien knows a thing or two about maintaining good mental health. It’s not exactly a walk in the park – or in Shae’s case, a naked walk in his neighbourhood. Through diary entries and reflections from two of the most trying periods of his life, Shae shares anecdotes and details of his illness – including tips that he hopes will help others understand and care for those who have mental ‘dis-ease’.
Description
After eight hospitalizations for bipolar depression since his first admission in 1998, and a total of more than 150 electroconvulsive therapy treatments, Shae Therrien knows a thing or two about maintaining good mental health. It’s not exactly a walk in the park – or in Shae’s case, a naked walk in his neighbourhood. Through diary entries and reflections from two of the most trying periods of his life, Shae shares anecdotes and details of his illness – including tips that he hopes will help others understand and care for those who have mental ‘dis-ease’. "Sometimes I think the book chose me to write it as opposed to my intentions to ever write a book," he says. "When I started to journal, I was doing it to survive the moment. As the moments kept stacking up, I had more than a couple paragraphs written on paper. After my second back surgery, I decided I could use some of the time I had, while recovering, to tell my story about my bipolar adventures. I'm glad I had some help to type the book. The whole purpose of this book is to help other people understand some trials of mental health. It's something you can't pick up and touch, so I hope this book can be a tangible resource leading to some success."
About the author
Shae Therrien has been, in his words, a bipolar entrepreneur since his diagnosis in 1998. He currently has his homestead in Regina, Saskatchewan, where he has lived and worked since 2002. In between hospitalizations and a couple back surgeries, a few of his passions are fitness, boxing at the Regina Boxing Club, and coaching and competing in CrossFit. Ice cream and popcorn are also a few extra hobbies he enjoys, alongside pretending he knows how to be an artist.
