Why Did She Jump?
My Daughter’s Battle With Bipolar Disorder
After many years of vacillating between unparalleled caring, generosity, and uncontrollable angry eruptions, Pam is finally diagnosed with Bipolar Disorder. However, due to difficulty and mismanagement of this insidious illness and apathetic attitudes within the health professional community as well as coping with her own personal demons, she ultimately jumps from a 15th-floor balcony. I chronicle not only Pam’s life but also, her own and our family’s struggle to understand this happening as well as the inadequacy of the health profession to treat this mental illness. My faith in the health system is challenged and proves a need for change.
MYTH OF THE MAIDEN: On Being A Woman
Joan’s fascinating look at the evolution of women from helpless maidens to powerful individuals follows her own soulful metamorphosis. Her journey begins in the 1950’s when she came of age. Like many women of her time, she believed that she needed a man to feel worthy as a woman. She believed in the Myth of the Maiden. Despite professional success and motherhood, she faced with several failed marriages and other difficulties which made her realize there was no “happily ever after.”
