Dr. Veronica looks at Bipolar Disorder--once called manic depression--an acute brain disorder that causes unusual shifts in mood, energy, activity levels and the ability to carry out everyday tasks. Guests include Andy Behrman (author Electroboy: A Memoir of Mania) who chronicles two decades of treatments from therapy to pharmaceuticals to electro-convulsive shock treatments. Also: psychotherapist and bipolar specialist Amy Lynn Dvorkin; "America's Behavior Expert" Scot Ferrell (author The Success Guide To Bipolar Disorder); and acupuncturist Tom Ingegno (author You Got Sick. Now What?). Russell Cook co-hosts.
It's good to talk.
