Authors new book shows how to use the disorder to succeed in life
LONGWOOD, FL--LONGWOOD, FL--Three weeks short of completing his master's degree in 1988, Xulon Press author Richard H. Jarzynka (Ya' Zhynka) suffered what psyche ward doctors called a nervous breakdown. To the author, however, it was something entirely different: he saw how evil his sin was in the eyes of God, and he lost his mind, never to be the same again. In Jarzynka's new Xulon Press release, Blessed with Bipolar: 36 God-Given Gifts of Manic-Depression ($20.99, paperback, 978-1-60791-888-2), the author uses his experience with bipolar disorder--the extreme emotions, the agony of depression, and the exhilaration of mania--to show the reader a radically different perspective.
Says Jarzynka, "I want readers to know that although bipolar can be agony, they can also use it to help them succeed. When they give their lives to Christ, God will constantly be with them in their experience of bipolar and He will use it for their absolute best. Impulsivity can turn into initiative. Grandiosity can become goal-setting. Racing thoughts, a brainstorming session. And manic elation, the energy and enthusiasm to get things done."
After completing his master's degree in psychology while an in-patient in a psych hospital, Jarzynka was later expelled from law school after the dean learned that he had bipolar disorder. The author then represented himself in a federal lawsuit against the school and found a blessing even greater than a law degree--all with the help of bipolar, he says. He hopes this book will demonstrate that no matter how much readers may suffer with bipolar disorder, God will use it to empower them.
