I: One M.D.’s Inward Journey to Liberate Himself from Mental Suffering---And The Help It Offers for Those Diagnosed Bipolar, Mentally Ill or Depressed with Dr. Jeffrey Fidel, MD
The diagnosis of Bipolar 1 Disorder– by medical decree and societal perception— is a lifelong sentence: unless you take and stay on prescription medicine, you cannot function as a “normal, sane member of society.”
But Jeffrey R Fidel, an MD himself, is proof that is not true. And he got there by turning off the voices in his head and listening to the one voice that counts—the one in his heart. In his beautiful, masterful and minimalist book: I: One M.D.’s Inward Journey to Liberate Himself from Mental Suffering---And The Help It Offers for Those Diagnosed Bipolar, Mentally Ill or Depressed, Jeffrey Fidel provides insight into his story and how he used the ancient teachings of Lao Tzu's Tao Te Ching, to connect to a voice originating from his heart, the "voice within" that teaches our true identity is "beyond thought" and that we and the universe are I(One)...
Jeffrey relates how he spent most of his life identifying with the I that was the I in his mind—the one that said he must achieve to exist...the one that drove him to become a doctor in order to meet other people’s expectations despite a part of him that resisted; the one that said he would be happy if he lived the “American dream” of exalted professional, family man and financial success. This was the “I” of his ego.
