Professional Patient: A Memoir of Bipolar Disorder 188.61 KB - As a psychologist and an individual with mental health problems, Leesa Abbott knows the difficulties and challenges patients with mental illness have first-hand. During her career, she has worked in prisons, schools, private mental health clinics, and universities. As a patient, shes been on medications, therapy couches, and in mental health wards. Using life-events to show her decline into mental illness, Professional Patient: A Memoir of Bipolar Disorder illuminates an all-too-common tragedy - a denial of mental health issues and avoidance of help from outsiders. Significant traumas, anorexia, substance abuse, anxiety attacks, obsessive-compulsive disorder, and bipolar disorder are revealed in this memoir, which uncovers her lifelong struggle to survive on both sides of mental illness. This memoir offers an intriguing look at the secrecy, shame, and every emotion in between that she has felt as she deals with her own mental illness while treating others at the same time.
