A SOUND MIND: HEALED OF DIAGNOSED BIPOLAR DISORDER

Shortly before I became a serious student of Christian Science, I was medically diagnosed with bipolar disorder, commonly described as manic depression.

According to medical opinions, a chemical imbalance could make me feel angry, sad, or even happy, at the drop of a hat. My behavior was often wildly irrational, and I can remember frequently crying for days on end. I'd become enraged over the smallest things; yet, in moments of relative calm, bigger problems wouldn't faze me at all. They'd just wash over me, and my family and friends were left feeling puzzled about my response. Because I couldn't afford the cost of expensive medication, I was left with virtually no treatment options. Or so I thought.
