MedlinePlus Trusted Health Information for You

 Meet David Mariant . . . .

    Cutting Edge Solutions . . .

    Bipolar Disorder Is Manageable!
    Here You Will Find the Map to Recovery!

    Recovery Only Requires Having The
    Most Current Information and Tools!

         Working through my own struggle with having bipolar,  put me on a journey to discover
         everything there is to know about this illness.

         When did I first realize that I had bipolar? When I found myself in a mental health facility.

They Told Me I Was Bipolar!
I Thought They Were Crazy!

“David, you have Bipolar Disorder.” These were the words I
heard from the Therapist in the hospital’s mental health lock-
down ward.

Before I could figure out what was happening to me, I was being hauled away by the police to a 72 hour lock-down facility at a local hospital. Locked-down; as in “you can’t leave; we won’t let you!” My journey to hell and back had just begun!

“Why are they trying to hurt me?”; I wondered?  "I haven’t done anything wrong. I broke no laws. I hurt no one!"  Why was even my own family resisting me and telling me to get help? It didn’t make sense to me...  at the time!
Dear Friends… 

Are you, or is someone you know, struggling emotionally?
Is it interfering with your life?

Believe me when I tell you that I understand.  I have been there!

Emotional Highs!
Emotional Lows!
Depression! – Despair!
Confusion! – Fear!
Irrational Behavior!

“My family was going through turmoil. What was wrong with my husband? His behavior was not normal. The kids were frightened.  
It was breaking us apart. Would 
he hurt himself? I just didn't know!

                             Diane Mariant,                              Co-Author  

   Bipolar: also known as “Manic Depression
   Symptoms: Severe mood swings, Mania, Irrational
                       Behavior, Depression and Dispair

Dave Mariant here…  to tell you that I am a Bipolar Disorder

Survivor!  I have
overcome its Fatal Grip on my life!

I have been to the pit of hell; and found my way back to good health!

I have paved the way for you!

In my recent book, “Surviving Bipolar’s Fatal Grip: The Journey To Hell and Back, I share with you all the grueling details of my struggle with bipolar. Others have found most of it to be shocking!

During my journey, I investigated every single thing that is available to help a person with bipolar. Every bit of that information is in this book to help you; including some things that are not common to many bipolar counselors.

The experience of a bipolar journey combined with past experience in other areas of personal development, has given me special insights into Bipolar Disorder. I pass on to you all the insights, all the practical tools, and day-to-day solutions, so that you really can manage it and recover, as I have.

“It could otherwise take years to learn!”

“Dave Mariant, with his wife Diane, has written an inspiring and useful account of the nature of bipolar affective illness and how to survive it.
Especially riveting, are the juxtaposed experiences of Mr. Mariant and his wife during times he was floridly manic. While taking pains to avoid interfering with professional treatment, he empowers patients and their families to take charge of the illness and make active choices to cope with and even grow from their experience. He includes many immediately practical  recommendations that could otherwise take years to learn while a humane spirit of understanding, compassion and humility permeates the book. It should be required reading for newly diagnosed bipolar patients and their families.”

Jonathan Russ, M.D., Adjunct Associate Professor Emeritus,
Stanford University  School of Medicine

"Jammed full of information, resources and useful tools!"

“I have known Dave for many years. I personally witnessed his bipolar condition at its worst. When he says that he has been to hell and back; believe it!
He was really in bad shape. I watched him struggle with this disorder for years. He always shared with me his new insights and discoveries and I personally witnessed the changes in him as he over-came its hold on him. He has grown  tremendously from this. His book is packed full of special insights, information, tools and solutions. Also, the first few chapters read like the script for a suspense movie as he describes in detail many of the actual experiences that he went through. At one of the lectures that Dave gave, which I attended, a woman who was half-way through reading his book was compelled to stand up and tell the audience that she hasn’t been able to put the book down. It had captivated her attention. It is a riveting account of Dave’s experiences, as well as his wife Diane’s experiences - what she went through dealing with a bipolar husband and the solutions that they uncovered. I highly recommend this book to anyone who needs help and wants solutions. It will not disappoint you. The information that it provides is invaluable.

"A valuable and helpful book..."

I have found "Surviving Bipolar's Fatal Grip" to be a valuable and helpful book for several reasons.  It is, firstly, a very easy to read book about a family's experience into the area of Bipolar that is not often discussed. The Mariant's have opened themselves up to discuss some very private, often difficult periods in their lives.

We get to learn about the experience of not only the patient but also the spouse.  Plus, it is a good quick reference book about definitions, symptoms, side effects, etc. that can be useful to people who are struggling with this mental disorder in their families or themselves.  Thirdly, it describes some techniques and procedures that have been successful for David during his struggle to maintain a more normal life while living with Bipolar Disorder that others may use for themselves.
