About the Book

A journey definitely worth taking—most definitely worth the read!
- Jack R. Eastman, R.N.

Wow! “Right on time.” Michelle has done it again! This is sure to be a bestseller. Our 47 year old author, a native of Albuquerque, NM, published her first book “Bipolar No More: A Memoir of Hope and Recovery” in 2008. Now, we’re again fortunate and inspired as she takes us on a short journey and infuses us with insight, foresight, and hope in our universal quest to maintain mental stability and wellness during the COVID-19 pandemic and beyond. Michelle always makes us feel instantly seen, while creating meaningful connections with her audience.

This memoir is written for anyone who has been touched by mental illness and/ or COVID-19 pandemic. It’s a guide, a tool, a comforter, uses various coping techniques, and provides support and views from the secular and Christian world. Michelle invites you to take this one-of-a-kind journey to find hope, help and answers to your most asked questions. Her experiences living with Bipolar I Disorder for 20 years will bring you inner peace so that you, too, can find the answers you need for today, tomorrow and always.

One in four Americans are struck each year with a mental illness. While these are challenging enough to deal with, beginning in 2020 the COVID-19 pandemic was added to the equation-causing numerous outbreaks of hospitalizations. Endless isolation, depression, and anxiety soared to all-time levels as did suicide.
